While advocacy is a key role for many library associations, it can vary widely in terms of goals, scope, scale, style, method, reach and impact. This one-day pre-conference will feature a selection of library association advocacy programs from across the world that are inspiring and have been influential -- whether advocating for the role of libraries in social development, education and literacy; for the support, resourcing and development of library strength and capacity within a country; or for the rights, freedoms and principles that enable equitable access to information in a complex, diverse and digital world.  
Speakers will highlight successes, challenges and outcomes, sharing lessons and practices that could benefit any library association looking to strengthen its advocacy effectiveness. There will also be opportunities for attendees to showcase their own innovative uses of media, social media, promotional materials, member engagement, champions, other advocacy means; and the agenda will provide ample opportunity for participant questions and table discussions.

IFLA is unable to provide any financial support to participants.
