What Libraries Can Learn from Other Organizations about Advocacy and Political Power (live webinar)

Tired of having to fight for monies from your city, county,
state and nationally elected officials? Or of being short staffed and short on
resources? Feel like libraries don't have a strong enough voice with the
politicians and decision makers?


This interactive and thought-provoking program looks at the
best practices of non-profit organizations that have achieved success through
their political power and advocacy efforts and what library organizations
including EveryLibrary can and are doing to keep the funding of libraries in
the eyes of the people that make the final decisions.


In this interactive and informative program, you'll learn:


  • The difference between a 501(c)(3)
    and 501(c)(4) status and examples of how those differences are used

  • How organizations including AARP, ACLU
    and the NRA have built their political power and how they use it

  • What libraries can learn from these
    organizations about creating a strong voice in your community, state and
    Washington D.C.

  • Ways your library and our library
    profession can further the process of building a community of library
