NCSL Redistricting Seminar: Salt Lake City, Utah, July 14-16, 2021

11/24/2021

NCSL's redistricting seminars for the 2020 cycle have concluded. This webpage is being maintained for informational purposes only.

Salt Lake City hosted the last installment of NCSL’s Get Ready to Redistrict: Seminars for Practitioners and Others.

If you are a legislator, legislative staffer, commissioner, commission staffer, an outside advocate or just an interested member of the public, these seminars are for you.

In two days, NCSL will deliver knowledge and practical instruction that you can customize for your state and your role in the process. If you’ve come to an earlier seminar, expect to:

  • Focus on practicalities—anything you need to know to get the job done
  • A chance to visit with your vendors to ensure that you know what your state’s capabilities are
  • We’ll review what going to court entails (because almost all states will be in court!)
  • The census is the hottest question in town, and we’ll have answers

If you’ve never come to a seminar:

  • It’s not too late to learn—and this is your chance
  • Because redistricting is complex, it’s probably easier to learn in person than from a book (but the red book is good too!)
You can meet the experts who you might want to bring to your state (I was going to say consult, but some are free and some are not—but all faculty will make themselves available)
