Guide to NALIT

 The National Association of Legislative Information Technology (NALIT) provides legislative information technology managers and staff with opportunities for training, professional growth and information sharing. NALIT is one of ten staff sections at NCSL. The relationships that develop out of the sections create a unique network for assistance, consultation and support.
 


Governance

NALIT is governed by a ten-member executive committee. The NALIT chair, vice-chair, and secretary are elected at the annual NALIT business meeting held in conjunction with the annual meeting of NCSL. The six regional directors are appointed by the NALIT chair immediately following the annual meeting. The immediate past chair of NALIT also serves as a member of the executive committee. All members of NALIT are entitled to participate in all of the association's activities and to vote at its annual business meeting. A three member nominating committee is appointed each year to report a slate of candidates to the annual business meeting.
 


 Purposes

The purposes of NALIT are:
 

  1. To promote the exchange of ideas and information on all aspects of legislative information systems. This includes, but is not limited to, the management and technical development of these systems.

  2. To provide a network of information exchange among persons involved in providing management and technical support for legislative information systems.

  3. To provide improved communications and foster better relations between legislative information systems management and staff, and the legislators and legislative staff they serve.

  4. To promote the service of the Association membership on the various committees, subcommittees, task forces, etc., of NCSL.

  5. To enhance the professionalism of the members of the Association through activities supporting the purposes noted above.
