What's the dress code?
Business casual is the norm for the Legislative Summit. We suggest bringing a light sweater or jacket with you during the day as the rooms are air-conditioned.
What health protocols will be in place?
The health and safety of meeting attendees is NCSL’s top priority. Attendees are encouraged to familiarize themselves with COVID-19 guidance provided by the CDC and the appropriate state and local public health authorities in areas they are traveling. By attending an NCSL meeting, you agree to follow any onsite health and safety protocols recommended by NCSL, the venue, and local and state governments. Currently, there is not a mask requirement in Denver and NCSL will not require proof of vaccinations or negative tests. NCSL will have disposable masks and hand sanitizer available for attendees.
When do the NCSL Executive Committee and Legislative Staff Coordinating Committee meet?
Sunday, July 31. To attend, please plan to arrive on Saturday, July 30.
What and when is States' Night?
States' Night, on Tuesday, Aug. 2, is an opportunity for delegates from each state to discuss the Summit and explore Denver. All events are coordinated by state delegations. Please let us know if your state has organized an event.
Will child care be provided?
Attendees requiring assistance with child care should contact their hotel concierge. There will not be a separate youth program with child care.
Can I host an event in conjunction with the Legislative Summit?
Any meetings held during the official hours of the Summit must be approved by NCSL in advance. Events held after normal event hours do not require permission, but NCSL asks to be notified so we can help delegates looking for your event. Please contact us with details about your event.
Is there accommodation for people with disabilities?
If you need special accommodations to ensure your complete participation, please contact us.
Is it difficult to adjust to Denver’s high altitude?
Denver really is a mile high, but most people don’t even notice the altitude difference. The air is just thinner and dryer. Follow these tips to stay happy and healthy during your visit to Denver: drink plenty of water before your trip and while you’re here, limit your alcohol intake, give your body 24 hours to adjust prior to doing any strenuous exercise, and pack your sunscreen, lip balm and sunglasses!
My question is not listed. Who should I contact?
Which sessions will offer CLE credits, and how many total credits will be available?
