Please note that the full Executive Committee meeting will be held on Monday, Sept. 29, with LSCC and subcommittee meetings taking place on Sunday, Sept. 28.

The Agenda Book for Reno is now online.

Senator Debbie Smith is proud to host the first meeting of the 2014-2015 Conference Year in her home state of Nevada. New NCSL officers: Senator Smith, will preside as president, and Peggy Piety, senior staff attorney with the Indiana Legislative Services Agency will serve as staff chair.

There will be an orientation on Sunday for all members of the Executive Committee, which will be of special interest to new members recently elected in Minneapolis.  We encourage everyone to make a special effort to be with us in Reno.

The NCSL Executive Committee and the Legislative Staff Coordinating Committee will continue the tradition of participating in the annual Lee Jeans Denim Day, in honor and memory of all those who have battled breast cancer, with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society.  For Lee National Denim Day our team (NCSL Executive Committee and LSCC), has set a fundraising goal of $800 and we would like your help in reaching it. We invite you to join our team and work with us to help raise money for this important cause.  If you wish to join or make a donation before the meeting in Reno, you may visit our team page.  Participants are welcome to show their support by wearing denim on Sunday, September 28th.

Meeting details or questions, please contact Shannon McNamara
