AALL Day on the Hill: Legislative Advocacy Leadership Training 2009
From the announcement:
On Friday, July 24, 2009 from 8:30am – 5:00pm, a group of your colleagues and peers will meet in Washington, D.C. for AALL Day on the Hill: Legislative Advocacy Leadership Training 2009. We want you to join in the action! The AALL Government Relations Office and the Government Relations Committee are pleased to offer you a unique opportunity to spend a day in Washington, D.C. to learn advocacy skills, network with colleagues, and meet with your Congressional delegation on Capitol Hill. With the 111th Congress gearing up to tackle new issues and a new president coming into office with a message of change, we need YOU to help get law library issues on the minds of your legislators!
By attending this year’s Advocacy Training, you’ll hear from the Government Relations Office staff and Government Relations Committee Chair Steve Mirsky, network with colleagues, and learn about our legislative agenda and new advocacy skills from Washington, D.C.’s own “Advocacy Guru,” Stephanie Vance. Ms. Vance has more than 15 years of experience as a lobbyist and a congressional aide and she will impress you with her knowledge and wonderful enthusiasm for advocacy. After spending the morning learning the skills you need to successfully advocate for law libraries on the federal, state, and local levels and in the workplace, you’ll be able to jump right in and meet with your congressional delegation in the afternoon. Following the tremendous success of the full-day training in 1999, we know this event will be educational, exciting and fun.
Our goal is to have participants from each chapter and every state so that we can develop chapter leadership, broaden support for our legislative work and train a larger number of highly skilled advocates. Please consider joining us in Washington, D.C. Building relationships is key to becoming a successful advocate, and what better place to learn how to build relationships with your lawmakers than in our Nation’s capital? Please register by contacting Emily Feldman at email@example.com.
