For 40 years, the Legislative Summit is where legislators and staff come together across the aisle to tackle critical problems and find solutions that work.
Each summer, NCSL brings thousands of legislators and staff together for its Legislative Summit, the largest and most substantive meeting of its kind in the nation. The Legislative Summit provides more than 150 informative sessions and presents nationally renowned speakers on the most pressing issues. Speakers have included the president of the United States, congressional leaders, cabinet members and experts from universities, think tanks and the private sector.
NCSL Legislative Summit offers countless opportunities to network with legislators, staff and experts from around the country through hundreds of sessions and activities.
