American Society of Legislative
Clerks & Secretaries

ASLCS word cloudThe American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries (ASLCS) was founded in 1943 to improve legislative administration and to establish better communication between clerks and secretaries throughout the United States and its territories. In 1974, ASLCS joined with several state legislative groups to form the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). From small beginnings, the Society has grown to include an active membership of over three hundred principal clerks and secretaries and legislative support staff. Today, the society is the most active of NCSL's 10 staff sections.
