ALCTS Announces Two Additional Midwinter Symposia

Successful Fundraising in Turbulent Times: Presented by the Library Administration and Management Association (LAMA) Fundraising and Financial Development Section, & ALCTS.

For the first time in 30 years, funding is down from all 5-income streams for libraries: government, foundation grants, corporate sponsors, earned income, and individual donations. Librarians need to have a clear strategy to find new donors and larger gifts from their current donors. After a review of the general principles of good fundraising, we will offer two special afternoon sessions. Librarians and trustees will share their success stories of best practices that work well now. Association staff will learn how to make the case for new funding.

Speakers: Joan Flanagan, President, Joan Flanagan & Assoc.; Peter D. Pearson, President, The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library.

Advance Registration Fees: ALA member: $210; LAMA/ALCTS member: $175; Non-member: $245; Student: $90.
Onsite: ALA member: $230; LAMA/ALCTS member: $195; Non-member: $265; Student: $90.
