MLA Connect Coffee Hour: Are You Prepared for Your Next Ballot Proposal? 

Thursday, September 16, 2021
10:00 – 11:00 AM

Are You Prepared for Your Next Ballot Proposal? The MLA Connect September Coffee Hour is all about how to build community support for your library. 

Learn why voter support for funding libraries is dropping in many places, and what support is for your library looks like in your community.  

Know in advance what amount voters are willing to pay to keep your library open, improve or expand access, what can be done to increase support, and who you need on your team.  

Guest: 

Edward V. Sarpolus, Target Insyght 

Over the past 25 years, Edward has spoken to hundreds of groups, organizations, associations in Michigan and across the United States and other countries. He is the Executive Director of Target Insyght, which assists organizations with market research, image management, public relations, advocacy, and ballot campaign consulting. He has worked on over 200 millage and bond campaigns in the last 30 years including many that impact Michigan libraries.
