The Public Policy Committee has a new name: the Advocacy and Public Policy Committee! Approved by the ARLIS/NA board last week, the APPC also has an updated charge. Keep your eyes peeled for more information soon.
The APPC News Alerts support the committee's mission to monitor public policy issues and keep the ARLIS/NA membership informed. The monthly alerts are intended to be conversation starters, help members keep up on public policy issues and alert members to new developments.
