Please find a general outline of the conference below.

Conference registration check-in will open in the afternoon of Monday, May 14. An introductory session for first-time attendees will take place followed shortly thereafter by the popular “Interactive Workshop on State Advocacy” for the remainder of the afternoon, and a welcome reception in the evening.

Tuesday’s program will begin bright and early with a continental breakfast followed by a program of speakers, including special guest, political crystal ball reader and Conference attendee favorite, Dr. Larry Sabato during lunch. New this year: the afternoon will provide flexibility to allow for visits with Congressional offices. The ASAPAC Reception will conclude the day.

On Wednesday, continental breakfast will be offered, followed by a brief program of speakers. Attendees will then be encouraged to travel to Capitol Hill for visits with Congressional offices.

(NOTE: Based upon the availability of speakers, the volatility of legislative work, and the ongoing development of the LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE 2018 program, all content is subject to change.)
