We will be offering a unique discussion group opportunity beginning next month. This group will be conducted online through Adobe Connect, and is open to all members of the region and MCMLA.

This discussion group will focus on the Advocacy aspects of librarianship. We will be reading the book "Winning the Story Wars" by Jonah Sachs and working to determine what our story is and how can we effectively communicate that to others. It is a fascinating book that has a lot to say about marketing and the environment in which we all operate.

The group will begin the first week of December and continue for ten weeks. There will be no discussion between December 24 and January 1. In order to participate in this group, you need to have a copy of the book by the first session. Leadership of this group will rotate between group members with each taking turns for preparing the discussion. MLA CE credit of 8 hours is being sought for this group.

This questionnaire is the official registration for the group. Please indicate if you are interested in participating and which days of the week work best for you. Barb Jones will contact you with the final schedule by November 27, 2012. We hope to see you there!
