Advocacy

The Georgia Library Media Association supports our members in advocating for the support of their school library programs. GLMA employs a registered lobbyist to represent members in the legislative process, and we use various forms of electronic communication and social media to keep our members informed about the state-level policies that impact their programs. We also support members in advocating for their programs at the school, district, state and national levels.
