Description:

Learn how to use economic impact studies (EIS) in municipal advocacy, to demonstrate library value and help municipal policymakers connect library services and impacts to your city’s prosperity and success.

Through interactive dialogue, attendees will be engaged in the sharing of experiences and ideas for municipal advocacy strategies.

Attendees will learn:
1. How to use the lens of the EIS to connect the taxpayers’ investment in public libraries to their City’s prosperity and success.
2. How to use EIS data to engage external stakeholders in the library’s narrative around fiscal stewardship and a thriving community.
3. How to integrate the EIS into a broader advocacy toolkit designed to engage Ontario’s newly elected municipal Councillors.
