2015 Fiscal Analysts Seminar


Oct. 13-16 | Portland, Maine

The NCSL Fiscal Analysts Seminar provides both the knowledge of national experts and the expertise of senior legislative staff who are policy experts in their states.

This seminar is designed specifically for legislative fiscal and research staff with budget or tax responsibilities. Legislative council, committee, research and program evaluation staff, and executive budget office staff will benefit from the program. The seminar is a unique opportunity to explore key topics in depth and meet informally with colleagues from around the country to discuss common concerns. This year's issue tracks will be K-12 Education, Higher Education, Human Services and Tax.
