Leadership Staff

Leadership Staff Section

The NCSL Leadership Staff Section was founded in 1975 as a professional organization for legislative staff in the fifty states who work for leaders and party caucuses. The purposes of the section are:

  • To provide a national forum for the recognition of the contributions of leadership staff to the legislative process; 
  • To enhance communication among leadership staff members in the 50 states and the insular possessions and the territories; 
  • To increase effectiveness of leadership staff; and 
  • To offer a forum for discussion of how leadership staff can better serve their leaders and their legislators.
