Advocacy Committee


The Advocacy Committee was created in 2015, as a result of the merger of the Library Advocacy and Governmental Relations committees.

Information and documents related to this merged committee will appear in this area.  The web pages for the previous two committees have not been deleted, and are linked here for archival purposes.
