Advocacy Workshops From State Library And Libraries For The Future Reach Out To Trustees
Fall 2001 issue of Trustee
Trustees, library administrators, and friends will learn how to generate public support and work with community and government leaders at two workshops at the New York Library Association's Fall Conference. Sponsored by the New York State Library and Libraries For the Future, the workshops kick off a series of advocacy training sessions.
The workshops take place on Wednesday, October 17. The first takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will teach participants how to get public support for building projects and bond issues. The afternoon workshop from 2 to 5 p.m. will show participants the ins and outs of winning interest (and funding!) from officials.
You can register in advance for the preconference by contacting the NYLA office at 1-800-252-6952 extension 22.
Three regional workshops are also being organized for October and November. The goals of the workshops include helping trustees learn how to become advocates for their libraries and enabling them to become more proactive in seeking funding and other support. For more information about the workshops contact Valerie Chevrette at the New York State Library at 518/474-5961 or by email at email@example.com.
