NO LIBRARY WORKERS PRESENTING?
Library workers are doing incredible work around the country and are presenting at many of the library conferences that we typically attend. You've probably heard from them already! We wanted our conference to do something different. We wanted to bring in some of the world's most cutting edge leaders from outside of our industry in order to infuse librarianship with new ideas, strategies, and tactics that they can adopt to increase their funding and community support. We also know that under the traditional models of advocacy, libraries have lost over 20% of voter support in the last 10 years. That means that we need something new! We're excited to bring unique ideas to the library industry through this conference.

WHY SO EXPENSIVE?
LAFCON is bringing in some of the world's biggest leaders in social movements, politics, philanthropy, and community organizing. Typically, a political conference of this nature sells for over $400 a ticket and usually quite a bit more! We know this, because we've paid it before in order to learn from many of these experts. This is information that you will not find a regular library conference because none of these presenters come from the library industry.
