With Congress in a state of gridlock, state governments have recently provided a unique opportunity for law librarians to influence policymaking in their own backyards. From enacting the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA) to fighting proposed budget cuts, law librarians have been on the front lines of some of the most important decisions impacting access to legal information.
Join the AALL Government Relations Office staff on Tuesday, October 29 from 12:00-12:30 pm ET for “Advocating at the State Level: Tips and Tricks for Success.” We’ll offer tips to help you raise the profile and visibility of law libraries in your state. Learn how to build effective coalitions, help introduce pro-law library bills, and form relationships in your legislature.
As state budgets rebound from the shortages of the last several years, there are more opportunities to enact a proactive library agenda. Register today to learn how you can help.
This training is complimentary for AALL members and chapter members, but advance registration is required. Sign up online by October 28.
