Legislative Meet-ups

2020 Legislative Meet-Ups

This series of eight legislative events provides 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 social media or to invite them to visit your library.

Advance registration is required, so don't wait! If you have questions regarding registration or 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
