The Fall Forum is the only meeting of its kind to bring together legislators and legislative staff to discuss pressing topics for the states.
The October/November issue looks at the oil boom in North Dakota and brings to mind an old saying:"Be careful what you wish for."
"The purpose of the National Legislative Program Evaluation Society (NLPES) is to advance the profession of legislative program evaluation and performance auditing and to provide members with relevant training, opportunities for exchanging ideas and information, and recognition for superior performance."
—adopted September 2000, NLPES Executive Committee
The National Legislative Program Evaluation Society (NLPES) is one of 10 staff sections associated with the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). NLPES includes employees of state legislative agencies engaged in program evaluation or performance auditing. The purpose of NLPES is to advance the profession of legislative program evaluation and performance auditing and to provide members with relevant training, opportunities for exchanging ideas and information, and recognition for superior performance. Interested persons whose professional work precludes membership may request to affiliate with NLPES. Affiliates are invited to participate in NLPES activities and promote the Society's interests, but only members can vote in NLPES elections and hold an elective office. NLPES does not charge dues.
NLPES holds its Networking and Awards Luncheon in conjunction with NCSL's Legislative Summit. The outgoing chair presides over the Networking and Awards Luncheon where staff section activities are discussed, committee reports are given and members of the executive committee for the coming year are introduced.
For information on ways to participate, talk to the NLPES key contact in your office. For other assistance, call the NLPES staff liaison in the NCSL Legislative Management Program at 303-364-7700.
