Fun with Governmental Advocacy

Kathy Dempsey (left) with Stephanie Vance
From ALA in Las Vegas: While attending a session run by the very knowledgeable Stephanie Vance, I volunteered to be a mock presidential candidate. My pitch beat the other 2 "candidates" (according to the unscientific "applause-o-meter"), making me president of the room! We were given copies of one of Vance's books for our efforts. I definitely recommend getting Citizens In Action: A Guide to Influencing Government or any of her other books if you want to know how to win support from government representatives.
