Advocacy is a driving force in the minds of archivists—an engine to move the archival enterprise forward—but advocacy is defined and used in different ways and must be performed differently in the varied environments in which archives exist. The speakers explore what advocacy means in the government, educational, and business worlds and demonstrate how the meaning and means of advocacy change depending on the circumstances that different archives and archives associations face. 

Breyer: Advocacy in Archives: Making Yourself Relevant
Chartier: Advocating to the Public: Raising Awareness from the Classroom to the State House
Huth: Defining Archives for Local Government Archives and Records Management Programs
McCoy: Helping Business Archivists to Help Themselves: BAS Advocacy Toolkit and the 2014 BAS Colloquium
