Communicating with public officials is a crucial aspect of advocating for your library. Just like with any professional task, there are ways to go about this work that are better than others. How do you know what those best practices are? In this session we will discuss the logistics of setting meetings with public officials and talk about the incentives that public officials work within. Attendees will leave the session with an understanding of how to set meetings with public officials, how to communicate with their staff, and learn what it is they need to communicate to public officials about their libraries.
This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.
