The annual Public Policy Update connects members with AALL’s policy committees and fellow advocates to promote and strengthen the Association’s grassroots advocacy efforts. Participants will hear about AALL’s past and upcoming legislative priorities—including greater access to authentic legal information, a more open government, balance in copyright law, and protection of privacy—and have the opportunity to talk with the policy committee chairs and one another during small group sessions. In addition, Public Access to Government Information Award winners Kyle K. Courtney and the State Copyright Resource Center Team and Robert L. Oakley Advocacy Award winner Peggy Roebuck Jarrett will receive their awards and give brief remarks. This year’s program will be followed by AALL’s Advocacy Leadership training, where members will learn to put their knowledge into action in support of the information policy issues affecting the profession.
