The NCSL Executive Committee
The National Conference of State Legislatures' Executive Committee is the governing body of the Conference. The executive committee and Conference officers have supervision, control and direction of the affairs of the Conference, its committees and publications. It also implements the policies and supervises the disbursement of its funds.
The executive committee, an elected body, is composed of 60 members: seven officers; 27 at-large legislator members; three annual meeting representatives; four regional legislators from the Council of State Government; three ex officio members; and 16 legislative staff members. Officers include a president, president elect, vice president, immediate past president, staff chair, staff vice chair and immediate past staff chair. Each member is entitled to vote on any matter coming before the committee. Legislative staff are entitled to vote only on organizational matters--not on matters of public policy.
The Executive Committee meets three to four times a year at such time and place as the committee decides. The president may call special meetings as necessary.
The preliminary agenda will be available online and the Executive Committee Agenda Book includes detailed agendas of meetings. The book will be mailed to all members prior to the meeting.
