ELGL Honors Ancel Glink

We would like to thank our friends at ELGL (Engaging Local Government Leaders) for recognizing Julie Tappendorf and Dan Bolin for their appearance on the GovLove podcast! Julie and Dan joined host Stacy Schweikhart to discuss local governments on social media in Episode 147 “Local Goverment Law, Are You Tweeting Into Trouble?” At the 2017 GovieLovie Awards, the episode earned the Tag Team award, for best episode with more than one guest.

Julie and Dan also authored a companion article, “Supreme Court Decision Affects Local Governments on Social Media,” which ELGL recognized as one of its top three most-read articles in 2017. Julie and Dan discussed how the First Amendment affects social media use by governments and their employees, and the importance of adopting a social media policy.

ELGL is a fast-growing, big-tent organization, connecting and educating local government professionals across Illinois and across the country. The GovLove podcast is the leading podcast about local government, and we look forward to joining ELGL for more episodes of GovLove Legal in 2018. ELGL’s website had over one million views in 2017, and was recently named one of the 30 Must-Read State and Local IT Blogs by State Tech magazine. We are excited about ELGL’s work for local government professionals, and we look forward to being a part of another great year for ELGL.
