Attendees will explore the why of local governments and libraries, how they work together, and the duties of various local government officials. We'll also talk about financing library services, the requirements and limitations placed on local governments, and how to be better stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Tracy’s areas of expertise include library law, board development, personnel, local government relations, and advocacy. Tracy enjoys hiking, canoeing, citizen scientist work, and golf. She also volunteers for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks and the National Park Service whenever she can.
