NCSL Redistricting Seminar: Portland, Ore. Sept. 10-13, 2020

Sept. 10-13, 2020

Note: Our top priority is the health and safety of our members and meeting participants. In light of the orders of the Governor of Oregon, the September 10-13 redistricting seminar in Portland has been canceled. Attendees may receive a refund or apply your registration to a future seminar. Most airlines are waiving change fees for flights. You should be able to cancel your hotel reservation without penalty. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Can't make it to Portland? We have one more seminar coming up!

In 2½ days, NCSL will deliver knowledge and practical instruction that you can customize for your state and your role in the process. Expect answers to:  

  • What’s the legal landscape for redistricting?
  • What technology is available for redistricting?
  • What data are useful to use for redistricting?
  • How do states balance various principles and priorities when they redistrict?
  • How do you involve the public in the process?

Interested in sponsoring these meetings (or this specific meeting)? Contact Ben Williams.
