Four Decades Strong

For 40 years, lawmakers and staff have gathered each summer in a great American location for NCSL’s Legislative Summit. At this premier meeting for legislators and staff,  policy sessions offer ideas and insights and nationally known speakers inspire, challenge and sometimes even entertain us. This year the Summit is in Minneapolis, a great city to add to the list.
