It’s Take Action Tuesday and Week One of the Winter 2017 Everyday Advocacy Challenge!

Write an elevator speech to introduce yourself to a local elected official.

With a new presidential administration about to take office, now’s the perfect time to get to know your local elected officials.

This week, write a brief elevator speech—no more than a sentence or two—to help you introduce yourself to your library community’s alderman, the town mayor, or local government staff members.

Use the the elevator speech infographic created by the ALSC Public Awareness Committee to learn the nuts and bolts of getting started.

Be sure to keep your audience in mind as you craft your message so your elevator speech resonates with him, her, or them.

Next week, you’ll try out your elevator speech as part of an introduction you’ll make by phone or in person!
