The Legislative Education Staff Network regularly holds meetings and seminars for legislative staff in conjunction with meetings of the National Conference of State Legislatures and the Education Commission of the States. These meetings provide staff with the opportunity to learn more about education policy issues from national experts and to connect with other legislative staff from across the country. The meetings also typically include a business meeting where legislative staff can learn more about LESN activities and how they may benefit from involvement in LESN.
For more information about LESN meetings and seminars, please contact Sara Shelton, NCSL LESN Staff Coordinator at 303-856-1647 or email@example.com.
