Every year hundreds of museum professionals visit their federal elected officials in Washington, DC, as part of AAM's Museum Advocacy Day. But just as important is the advocacy work done at the state level. This session looks at ways in which museums, museum associations, and advocacy organizations can work together to make state and local elected officials aware of, and responsive to, the needs of museums in their state. #nutsandbolts
