NALIT LOGONational Association Legislative Information Technology (NALIT) Listserv

General Information

The National Association of Legislative Information Technology (NALIT) listserv is an e-mail forum and information exchange for legislative information technology staff to discuss issues related to the use of technology and computers in legislatures. NALIT listserv subscribers post messages to the list that are then sent out to all other subscribers to create an electronic discussion group. NCSL staff use the NALIT listserv to distribute the NALIT Newsletter and to post meeting announcements, agendas and other association information.
Discussions on the NALIT listserv have focused on bill drafting systems, networking issues, websites, cloud computing, e-mail policies, and many other issues. Some subscribers have posted survey questions on the listserv.
