Join in the Advocacy Discussion at ALSC Community Forum

The ALSC Board of Directors and ALSC President Carolyn Brodie will be hosting an ALSC Community Forum live chat during the first week of December. The first half of the hour will be an update of ALSC news, notes from the ALSC Fall Executive Board meeting and time for your questions. The second half of the hour will consist of a discussion on the topic of “advocacy.” Members of ALSC will be joined by the Advocacy and Legislation Committee for the discussion.

Please join us at one of two Community Forums on ALSC’s ALA Connect site to share thoughts and ideas, ask and answer questions about advocacy, and join your colleagues from across the nation in conversation. In preparation you may review the 2012-2017 ALSC Strategic Plan at http://www.ala.org/alsc/aboutalsc/stratplan

Your two opportunities to join us are:

  • Monday, December 3 at 10am EST (9am CST, 8am MDT, 7am PST)
  • Wednesday, December 5 at 2pm EST (1pm CST, 12pm CDT, 11am PST) [Find your time zone]

Members are encouraged to attend at either of these times or both. Can’t make it to either time? Even after the Forum ends, the conversation continues on ALA Connect. ALSC will be posting other questions and a transcript from the live Forum. Whether or not you can join in the live Forum, please add your voice by leaving a comment.
