PHILADELPHIA — The Library Leadership & Administration Association (LLAMA) and United for Libraries are requesting feedback via a survey as they work together to develop a pre- or post-conference event on fundraising for the 2013 American Library Association (ALA) Conference, in addition to webinars on fundraising.

More and more, libraries are complementing tax support with fundraising efforts.  As services become increasingly diverse, so too are the funding streams to support them. An event at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference, which will be planned by LLAMA and United for Libraries, will bring together experts in fundraising to help librarians and library fundraisers learn how to become more effective in their efforts. In addition, LLAMA and United for Libraries are developing webinars about library fundraising. In order to deliver outstanding programming and webcasts, LLAMA and United for Libraries are requesting responses to a brief, quick survey. The deadline to complete the survey is Oct. 1, 2012. To access the survey, visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/united-llama-survey.

The Library Leadership and Management Association  advances outstanding leadership and management practices in library and information services by encouraging and nurturing individual excellence in current and aspiring library leaders.  LLAMA is a division of the American Library Association.

United for Libraries: The Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations, is a division of the American Library Association that supports citizens who govern, promote, advocate, and fundraise for libraries. United for Libraries brings together library Trustees, advocates, friends, and foundations into a partnership that creates a powerful force for libraries in the 21st century.
