One Thought on “YALSA Online Chat on Advocacy – Tomorrow Night!

  1. Dr. Ken Haycock will deliver a San Jose State University Colloquium next week live, but will be free and accessible by 24 Oct on advocacy. And he will break the conventional misconceptions about “advocacy” and influence building v.s. “getting the word out” and “marketing.”
