Social Networking

Social Media

NCSL members are active on many social media sites. We want you to stay connected with each other and NCSL while attending the 2012 Legislative Summit in Chicago this summer.

You’ll get information on more than 100 policy sessions, and the opportunity to network with legislators and staff from across the country who share your concerns and interests. In addition, we encourage you to share the information and ideas that you will learn and discuss at the Summit with colleagues and constituents via your social network sites. You can upload pictures, post information or re-tweet from the free wifi available throughout the entire McCormick Center in Chicago. 

You Tube

NCSLorg has its own YouTube channel. We often post videos of the most relevant interviews with our policy analysts, legislators, legislative staff and political insiders. Interviews from the Summit will be housed here. Make sure to subscribe to our channel.


FlickrA picture can capture a moment in time. You can share photos through NCSL’s Photostream on Flickr of yourself with colleagues attending sessions, working or shaking hands with some of our world-renowned speakers at the Summit.


BlogNCSL will recap general sessions on its blog, The Thicket. Make sure to subscribe to receive the information directly.


Live Sessions

NCSL is aware that many legislators and staff cannot travel during these tight budget times. But you can still have access to the valuable content and information. For the second year, NCSL will stream several policy sessions live from Legislative Summit. You can view them on NCSL's website. The live streaming videos will be available during and after the Summit. All sessions are free and listed in Central Daylight Time!
