47th ALEC Annual Meeting

July 15-23, 2020

Meeting Summary

The ALEC 47th Annual Meeting Goes Virtual!

After much consideration, the ALEC Board of Directors and management team have made the decision to take the July 15-17 ALEC Annual Meeting virtual. A positive member experience is always our primary focus in offering counsel and training or in executing a meeting. Because of recent developments in Florida as well as an increasing number of states requiring two-week quarantines for people traveling back from Florida, we believe it prudent to shift the Annual Meeting to an all-digital event.

In the coming days we will release a complete agenda, but rest assured you will still be able to hear from national policy leaders on the most pressing issues and participate in the same high-quality task force meetings, workshops and training. The ALEC team is prepared to offer you an unparalleled digital experience from the comfort of your home or office.

Subcommittee meeting will still be hosted this week, July 8 – 10. General sessions and Task Force meetings will take place as planned from July 15-17 with workshops, caucus meetings and training sessions taking place from July 21 – 23. The goal of the extended digital engagement will be to give you as much access to as many sessions as possible while being respectful of your time. Regarding your meeting registration, we encourage you to convert your registration to the virtual platform at a discounted rate ($350 for Legislators and $550 for private sector participants). For those unable to attend virtually, you may roll your registration to the States & Nation Policy Summit or request a full refund by contacting Gwen Hodge ([email protected]).

Now more than ever, it is important for legislators, business leaders and community advocates to partner in solutions development. Our virtual meeting will be a time and space to collaborate, debate policy and get prepared for the campaign and legislative session ahead.

ALEC members continue to bring the best ideas forward in the states. Thank you for your dedication to ALEC and to one another. Our network is strong and our policies have and will continue to advance individual liberty and free enterprise across our country.

See you online!
