Visit the Advocacy Team at the Wi15 Ask ABA Desk [4]

The American Booksellers Association’s Dave Grogan and Molly Bond, the team behind the American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE) [6] and ABA’s advocacy efforts, will be on hand at the Ask ABA desk during the 15th annual Winter Institute [7] next week in Baltimore.

Stop by the Ask ABA desk between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22; Thursday, January 23; or Friday, January 24, for all of your free speech and advocacy-related questions.

  • Minimum wage
  • Tariffs
  • Third-Party Marketplace Facilitator laws and how they impact your state and business
  • How to organize effective meetings with community leaders and state and federal lawmakers
