You value your profession, but aren’t sure how to make an impact in advocating for it? This workshop offered in support of SAA’s Strategic Goal 1: “Society values the vital role of archivists and archives”provides information on how to identify goals, develop and deliver a message, and implement methods for advocating for archives programs (including your own!) and archives issues. The instructor offer practical approaches, tangible models, and examples of materials needed to be an effective advocate.
In this workshop you’ll learn how to:
Develop a focused statement of an advocacy goal for your institution or an archives issue of concern;
Create a profile of the audience/individual to whom your advocacy efforts will be directed and develop a plan for how to approach that person/organization;
Craft advocacy support materials as part of the effort;
Deliver a three- to five-minute “pitch” to support your advocacy goal; and
Construct a framework (plan) for reaching your advocacy objectives.
Who should attend? Archivists, librarians, museum curators, and others at any experience level who want to enhance their skills in advocating for archives programs and issues.
Attendance is limited to 30.
