Legislative Forum

Annual Library Legislative Forum

Everyone welcome: Experienced advocate or a novice, super-involved or just curious, please join us!

The Legislative Forum is the traditional kick-off to the legislative year, and is open to all MLA and ITEM members and others interested in library legislative activities. The day focuses on strategies that members can use to build support for our joint MLA/ITEM platform and education around the legislative process. Attend and learn more about the challenges libraries are facing and the current proposed solutions. Participate in discussions and strategy development sessions to hone your advocacy skills. Gain an understanding of what is on our legislative platform and why it matters. You will be inspired by conversations with other committed colleagues, and leave better prepared to build local support and stronger voices among staff, board, patrons, and city and county officials for the important legislative changes we need.

Make a difference, be the change, and take part!
