New Member Orientation in State Legislatures

3/30/2012

Legislating is tough work, and there is little time for new members to adjust to their responsibilities.  Being a state legislator means having to make hard decisions on spending, policy and constituent problems.  Although a person's business or professional life and previous political experience provide a helpful start, state legislatures commonly use new member orientation and other training to help freshmen prepare for their difficult new duties.

Below you will find links to an overview, list of new member orientation coordinators, an NCSL webinar with new member orientation experts and sample orientation agendas:
