2016 Symposium for Legislative Leaders | Washington, D.C.

June 8-10, 2016

CapitolAmerica's top legislative leaders will convene in Washington, D.C., at the Hotel Monaco, June 8-10, 2016, to learn from each other and have conversations with top thinkers in economics, policy and politics on the Hill and in the Administration, and we want you to join us.

In the typical busy legislative session, there is often not enough time to reflect on leadership and all that the job of legislative leader entails. So we are inviting you to this exclusive meeting to do just that. Spend three days with leaders like yourself from legislatures across the country, people with the same concerns, the same challenges and the same desire to be effective and successful.

In addition to the substantive program that you have come to expect at the NCSL Leaders meetings, you can enjoy all that Washington, D.C., has to offer. Please note that this invitation is only for Senate presidents, Senate presidents pro tem, speakers of the House, speakers pro tem, and majority and minority leaders and is not transferable.

As a legislative leader, you will receive:

  • Two complimentary nights at the Hotel Monaco on June 8 and 9.
  • Meals while at the symposium.
  • Free registration to this exclusive event.
