Legislative Staff Week 2022

5/4/2022

Thank You, Legislative Staff!

Every day, you and your colleagues work behind the scenes to support the work of state legislatures. From drafting bills to keeping computer networks secure, legislatures couldn't function without you. This week, we celebrate your contributions and consider the importance of both gratitude and recognition in the legislative environment.

Please join us! Here's how you can participate:

  • Give a shoutout to a colleague who's gone above and beyond.
  • Check out a special-edition podcast and articles created with you in mind.
  • Register for our webinar on the value—and magic!—of workplace rituals.
  • Share a photo or post on social media of how you're honoring your colleagues.

Recognize a Colleague with a Shoutout - and Win!

 Give a Shoutout!

 

Leadership, innovation, collaboration, support or exceptional commitment ... which of your colleagues come to mind? Give them a shoutout and you’ll be entered in a drawing. Four lucky winners will receive their choice of either a free registration for NCSL Base Camp (in November) or $100 off the registration fee for a Fall 2022 Legislative Staff Professional Development meeting. Plus, NCSL will treat the winning state to an ice cream social for staff! Connecticut, Delaware and Georgia staff all made strong showings last year. Will they do so again?

Register for the Magic of Rituals webinar 
On Tuesday, May 3, best-selling author and workplace strategist Erica Keswin will be on hand to discuss how legislative teams can improve performance through rituals. You’ll learn how to create and amplify the important rituals that keep you and your team connected to each other and your purpose and values. Ask questions or just listen in on how to transform your everyday routines into workplace magic. Register now for this 2 p.m. ET webinar.

Special Legislative Staff Townhall
Join us for a short conversation on Monday, May 2 at 1 p.m. ET with NCSL Staff Chair J.J. Gentry, Counsel for the South Carolina Senate.

Special Edition Podcast and Articles Just for You
Starting May 2, hear more from Erica Keswin on a special Legislative Staff Week edition of the "Our American States" podcast. Plus, each day, we will unveil a new Legislative Staff Week feature, including profiles of your colleagues, a look at this year's legislative staff awards, a discussion on workplace wellness and a conversation with several legislative team leaders on how they incorporate gratitude, recognition and rituals into their worklives.
