Legislative Meet-ups

2017 Legislative Meet-Ups

This year our regional advocacy efforts expand with seven 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!

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

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.

If your library isn’t covered by one of these events, contact ila@ila.org for talking points to create your own legislative meet-up!
