NCompass Live: The Librarian as Candidate: Activating Activists for Funding, and Election Day Outcomes

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live, “The Librarian as Candidate: Activating Activists for Funding, and Election Day Outcomes”, on Wednesday, June 1, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Are you looking for new ways to engage and activate advocates for your library? Join John Chrastka, Executive Director of EveryLibrary, to explore a range of innovative options to energize, focus, and improve your library advocacy efforts while learning how to put proven techniques that political campaigns use to reach voters to work. Come and learn how librarians who see themselves in a new, more politically savvy way recognize that they are “the candidate”. You’ll learn about tips and tools to market yourself to all your constituents – and not just users – that will help reframe your work in the eyes of the public and funders in a new way.

John will also talk about the work EveryLibrary did to support NLA and Nebraska libraries around LB969.
