PLA Online Seminar on Library Advocacy

The Public Library Association (division of ALA) is offering "Turning the Page 2.0," a free 6-week online course supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The description from the website:
In this six-week, facilitated online course, library staff and supporters will learn how to create and tell their library's story, deliver effective presentations, develop a compelling case for support, and build and sustain partnerships along the way.
 Anyone can participate; one of the sessions mostly takes place in August, when we don't have classes. I might actually try to register for it--but even if you don't want to let your overachiever freak flag fly and do the same, this is a great example of the kind of professional development opportunities you have to look forward to after graduation!
