MLA is excited to offer a new webinar resource created by Susan Burton at MALA! This 12 minute presentation will introduce you to best practices when engaging your senator and/or representative. Learn how to build a relationship with your state legislators and how to advocate effectively for your library and Missouri libraries. In this short presentation, you’ll learn how to initiate a conversation with your senator or representative, how to phrase your concerns in language and ideas they will appreciate, how to invite them into your library, and ideas on what to show them once they are there. This is a great introduction or refresher for all of us and it’s available free to all MLA members. If you want to learn how to advocate for your library or libraries in general,, or if you just want a refresher course, start here!
