Target Audience: All law librarians who are interested in information policy and legislative advocacy
1. Participants will identify AALL policies on a variety of information and legislative issues that impact the Association and our members.
2. Participants will list the top priorities and activities of the Copyright Committee, Electronic Legal Information Access and Citation Committee, Government Relations Committee, and Government Relations Office.
This year's Public Policy Update will shine a light-in a new, more informal setting-on the important work that AALL does for our members through our public policy program, and why we need your help to strengthen our Advocacy Team. AALL Government Relations Director Julie M. Strandlie will moderate an interactive conversation with audience participation on AALL's top policy priorities and the past year's accomplishments. Panelists, including Copyright Committee Chair Roger Skalbeck, Electronic Legal Information Access and Citation Committee Chair Timothy Coggins, and Government Relations Committee Chair Stephanie Hess, will also look into the "crystal ball" and offer their perspectives on what issues will emerge in the coming year. Please join us for this collaborative discussion that will conclude with the presentation of the prestigious AALL Public Access to Government Information Award and Robert L. Oakley Advocacy Award.
