STAFFHUB ATL 2022

Oct. 10-12, 2022

Staff Hub ATL 2022 will be held Oct. 10-12 in Atlanta. This meeting is sponsored by six of NCSL’s professional staff associations (see list of sponsoring staff associations below). The purpose of this meeting is to foster cross-pollination and shared learning between and increase synergy among the participating associations.

But Wait, There's More!

Consider coming early or staying late. There will be additional programming both before and after the main Staff Hub meeting. Training and networking opportunities specifically for NALFO, LINCS, RELACS, LSPA and LRL along with an invitational Heath Staff seminar are being offered as pre and post-cons. More details can be found in the “Sunday” and “Wednesday” tabs in the full Staff Hub ATL 2022 agenda.

Continuing Education

NCSL did not pre-apply for CLE in any state, but we do track attendance at sessions deemed to be CLE eligible. Participants will be provided materials to self-apply for CLE credit in their state. Final acceptance of CLE hours is the prerogative of your state’s CLE authority.

Some sessions may qualify for continuing professional education (CPE) credit. Materials will be available to document participants' attendance at seminar events. CPE credits must be awarded by seminar participants' own organizations, however. NCSL and NLPES are not registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy's National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
