Networking in your local community can be personally and professionally rewarding. For some this comes quickly and easily. Networking to achieve a strategic goal however can take time and must be done with care.  Done well a single employee, or small team, can move the needle on crucial strategic initiatives for an entire library system through connecting with the right local partners.

In this session we will discuss how networking is an avenue of advocacy and can assist in achieving your library’s strategic goals. We will share examples and discuss their organizational impact.

Attendees will:
• Learn a variety of networking strategies
• Learn what skills are needed to network appropriately
• Develop a sense of what areas of their strategic plan they could contribute to
• Discover unexpected opportunities to engage in their community
