AALL Day on the Hill Advocacy Training Agenda

Are you thinking about registering for AALL’s 2009 Day on the Hill Advocacy Training but aren’t sure what it’s all about? The AALL Government Relations Committee and Government Relations Office are pleased to announce that the agenda for this special event is now available on AALLNET. The Advocacy Training will take place on Friday, July 24, 2009 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Ballroom West (A) of the Renaissance Marriott in Washington, D.C.

By participating in this year’s Advocacy Training, you’ll network with colleagues, learn about AALL’s policy priorities, and hear from one of Washington, D.C.’s most well-respected advocates, “Advocacy Guru” Stephanie Vance. You’ll also have the opportunity to spend the afternoon on Capitol Hill, where you’ll meet with your members of Congress or their staffs. If you haven’t yet registered for the Day on the Hill, we encourage you to do so today. Please RSVP to me, AALL Advocacy Communications Assistant Emily Feldman, by June 15. We look forward to seeing you in D.C.!
