On Thursday, April 13, 2017, the ALA Washington Office Appropriations expert Kevin Maher and the Penn Hill lobbying group’s Aissa Canchola will host an hour long discussion about the Congressional budget process. Their goal is to help unravel the complicated tangle that is the FY17 budget, the FY18 budget, the President’s “Skinny” budget, Continuing Resolutions, and everything that means for library funding. They’ll also take time to look to the future and discuss what comes next in the appropriations process and ways that you can take action.
The free webinar will be hosted on the ALA YouTube channel on at 2:30 p.m. Eastern on April 13th and will include a time for Q and A. Tune in to hear from the experts and ask questions of how it all works (or doesn’t), and use #SaveIMLS to ask questions and join the conversation.
