Reminder: ILA Legislative Meet-Ups in January and February

(via Gwen Gregory, University of Illinois at Chicago)

The Illinois Library Association sponsors meetups where librarians can meet with legislators to let them know what is important to us. This is your chance to meet your state legislators and give them feedback! The 2018 events start January 29 and run through the end of February. Check for one in your area.

This year our regional advocacy efforts expand with eight legislative events providing an opportunity to meet with your legislators and speak with them firsthand about issues affecting you and your library.  Library trustees, directors, and staff from public, school, and academic libraries are encouraged to attend and participate.  Use this opportunity for photo ops with your elected officials to post on your Facebook page or to invite them to visit your library!

Register Online.

For any questions regarding registration, please e-mail tina@ila.org.  

Your registration fee includes breakfast or lunch, legislative materials, and state and federal legislative briefing.

If you’re not sure which Meet-up covers your library and legislative district, contact the ILA office at 312-644-1896 or email ila@ila.org.

Make your voice heard!
