From the boardroom to City Hall, powerful negotiation skills make a big difference in advancing library goals. From securing new funding to negotiating licenses to establishing mutually beneficial partnerships, today’s librarians at all levels of service are brokering support for the programs, policies and services needed to meet diverse community demands. Power up your ability to persuade at this lively and interactive session.

ALA Senior Policy Counsel Alan Fishel will bring nearly 30 years of legal practice and teaching effective and creative negotiation to the program. Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Senior Program Officer Chris Jowaisas will share his experience advocating for and advancing U.S. and global library services. The program will jump off from a new national public policy agenda for U.S. libraries to deliver new tools you can use immediately at the local, state, national and international levels.

The Policy Revolution! initiative aims to advance national policy for libraries and our communities and campuses. The grant-funded effort focuses on establishing a proactive policy agenda, engaging national decision makers and influencers, and upgrading ALA policy capacity.
