Advocacy and Legislative Priorities Survey 2021-2022

May 27, 2021

The Michigan Library Association has made advocacy one of its highest priorities. It has never been more important for librarians, staff members, trustees, and others with a vested interest in their libraries, to convey and address their challenges and successes. We hope you will take time out of your busy day to help us pinpoint the highest priorities that face our field.

Meeting the challenges in 2021 and, more importantly, making real progress for Michigan’s libraries in the long term requires fresh approaches and a pro-active agenda. The survey results will be used by the MLA Advocacy and Legislative Committee to prioritize our agenda and will address what you want us to work on in the coming year. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but one that has been compiled from concerns that have been shared with us over the past few years. if there are other priorities that you deem worthy, please add them to the list.

By completing the survey you will also be giving MLA valuable information to use when we speak to our legislators. The survey is quick and simple – it will take no more than 10 minutes to fill out and submit.

We welcome your feedback and hope to have all responses in hand by Sunday, June 6 so we can share results the next day with our Advocacy and Legislative committee members.
