At their June 11 meeting, the WLA Board approved creation of a library advocacy conduit to allow WLA members to contribute to the political campaigns of candidates for statewide office. Members would contribute directly to the conduit via WLA, and WLA would maintain the accounts of each contributor. Monies may only be released with the permission of the contributor at the time the contribution is needed. A check from the WLA conduit fund, listing each individual conduit contributor, is presented to the candidate. He or she may report the contributions as individual contributions.

There are five months remaining in the 2004 campaign season. Library supporters now have one more way of making their political presence felt! Watch for more details!
