Advocacy Task Force

Appointed by Jill Strand, SLA President 2015

Charge: The first priority of the task force is to develop a series of real life adaptable and appealing case studies/articles aimed at helping members demonstrate their contribution to the success of their employers. Collectively they could form a toolkit, but each piece should be able to stand alone. The task force will solicit examples from members in various roles and industries to develop into articles/case studies. The articles will be comparatively short (no more than 2 pages) to make them accessible and provide practical examples with appropriate graphics and illustrations of the concepts within the article.

The Task Force will work with HQ staff and other relevant committees or councils on appropriate mediums and communications to pitch the articles appropriately and provide a platform for discussion. The aim should be to complete first group of articles by the end of 2015 Depending on feedback from members, the task force’s charge could be extended another year to develop suggestions for how it might be possible to build on this platform; webinars, conference sessions, chapter/divisional events etc.
