    Recently, the Council of State Archivists held a webinar entitled "Advocacy for State Archives - Lessons Learned from the Birmingham Public Library."

    Summary from YouTube description: 
    Steve Murray, director of the Alabama Department of Archives and History and co-chair of CoSA's Advocacy Committee, will recount strategies developed and lessons learned during a statewide advocacy effort on behalf of the archives and special-collections departments of the Birmingham Public Library in 2020. When pandemic-related budget shortfalls threatened to leave the repositories shuttered and unstaffed for an indefinite period, Alabama allies worked with EveryLibrary to develop a stakeholder-focused approach to messaging. A representative of SAA's Committee on Public Policy will share an update on SAA's work to equip the archival community for acute advocacy needs such as those in Birmingham.

    All the best,

    Chair, RAAC Advocacy Committee
