The Professional Journal Committee annually publishes the Journal of the American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries. The Journal solicits articles on parliamentary procedure, management, technology, and other topics of interest to legislative staff and provides Society members with an opportunity for further professional development by having their work published in a professional journal. The chair of the committee serves as editor of the Journal and appoints members of the editorial board from among committee membership. The President, Associate Vice President, Immediate Past President, Immediate Past Associate Vice President, and all Society members who serve on the LSCC serve as ex officio members of the committee with voting privileges.
