2022 ASLCS Professional Development Seminar

5/11/2022

Little Rock, Ark. | Sept. 18-23, 2022

The American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries (ASLCS) is hosting its annual professional development seminar for principal clerks and secretaries and their staffs. 

This year's meeting takes place in Little Rock and aims to bring together U.S. and international participants to learn important skills and procedures, build relationships, and take away new tools and ideas to enhance the effectiveness of state legislatures.

On the agenda are sessions on leadership, team building, civics education, parliamentary procedure and a discussion with Cheryl Johnson, clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives; two breakout sessions for principals and associates; the Legislative Expo; and meetings of the standing committees and special committees. In addition, our hosts are planning an array of social events to allow attendees to network with their counterparts from other states while experiencing the best of Arkansas hospitality! 

Thank You to 2022 Seminar Sponsors International Roll-Call and Propylon!

City Information
The capital of Arkansas, Little Rock is a lively, walkable destination filled with award-winning restaurants, historic homes and artistic institutions. Central to many of Little Rock's attractions is one thing: history. Explore its civil rights history with a visit to the Central High School National Historic Site, then delve into the Clinton legacy at the Clinton Presidential Center. You can also learn more about 20th century American history with a trip to the ESSE Purse Museum, a cultural hub of female heritage and storytelling. Be sure to take a stroll through Riverfront Park to admire its sculptures and head to the River Market district to enjoy the many food vendors. A great way to experience the city is along the Arkansas River Trail, which runs through town and connects many of the tourist attractions.
