What will the upcoming midterm elections mean for your library and community? Join us for a free 60-minute webinar on Friday, November 9 at 11:30 a.m. Eastern where we’ll provide an overview of key results from the 2018 elections and explore their implications. ALA’s Washington Office will dig into how the outcomes could affect engagement from library advocates and how ALA’s upcoming advocacy plans will align.

Participants will learn the library-related implications of the 2018 election results; how those results affect library policy agenda, outreach, and advocacy plans for 2019 and beyond; and specific policy and political opportunities for ALA and libraries.

Our panelists include:

 Jim Neal, immediate past president of ALA

• Alan Inouye, senior director of public policy and government relations, ALA Washington Office

• Vic Klatt, principal, Penn Hill Group, Washington, D.C.

 Gigi Sohn, distinguished fellow at Georgetown Law Institute for Technology Law and Policy and Benton senior fellow and public advocate
