Is your community leadership hostile towards public library funding? Do they refuse to consider the relevancy and essential quality of library services? Is each year (especially this year) a battle to get even flat funding? This program will help you create a Negotiation Plan that wins over hostile local funders and/or sets you on the path towards dedicated library funding. Learn how to create joint outcomes, optimize data and budget information, and successfully negotiate the path towards library solvency. Hear from library leaders that have successfully negotiated tricky relationships, develop and practice your pitch using a template, and leave with a concrete plan to improve your funding.
