What do you think of when you hear the word "advocacy"? Do you immediately think of stumping on Capitol Hill and meeting with local government officials? “Advocacy” is much more than politics. Every day, librarians and staff find themselves in situations where they must advocate for resources, money, and services for their libraries, in addition to advocating for themselves and their career as professionals.


Join us on September 12 for an Amigos Library Services online conference, Speak Up – Advocating for You and Your Library, where we will explore advocacy beyond politics.


Amigos Library Services is now accepting presentation proposals for this conference! Suggested topic areas include but are not limited to:


If you can speak to one of these topics, or have another idea in mind, please submit your proposal by June 29, 2018. Don’t worry if you’ve never presented online. It’s easy, and we are happy to train you and will provide technical support during your presentation.
