Jennifer Duffy, senior editor of “The Cook Political Report,” will discuss recent changes in the political landscape at the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle, on Saturday, Jan, 26, 2013. The political expert will detail the ways that the recent presidential and congressional elections will impact library policies and legislation during the Washington Office Update session from 8:30–10:00 a.m. PST.
Duffy, who has accumulated more than 25 years of political campaign experience and polled voters during the recent presidential election, will instruct political activists on how to communicate their issues in ways that resonate with legislators and other decision makers in a session titled, “Legislative Issues – What the Election Results Mean for Libraries: An Outlook for the New Congress.” Duffy will share strategies and tips, as well as characteristics about the new Congress and the current political landscape.
If you are a library supporter, you are encouraged to attend the event to ask questions and discuss features of the newly elected Congress. Additionally, ALA Washington Office staff will provide updates on what library advocates need to know to be effective in the future.
