Perhaps you've seen that the recently released President's budget proposes a $20 million cut to the IMLS program as well as consolidating the Improving School Literacy through Libraries program into other literacy efforts, meaning that school libraries will face much higher competition for much fewer funds.  Clearly, this budget cycle brings both fresh perspectives as well as fresh challenges.  In this session we'll look at recent message trends and how to apply them successfully to make a difference in Washington DC.  We'll also look at the federal budget process and what it means for you.  Now more than ever Members of Congress and their staff need to hear from all parts of the library world -- from directors to patrons to supporters and everyone in between.  Come to this session to learn the latest on what federal policy and funding issues may impact your libary and get five key tips on making a difference in the new year.
