For just $100 for a two-year membership, you can be part of America’s largest nonpartisan, voluntary membership organization of state policymakers. ALEC brings together nearly one-third of the country’s state legislators and hundreds of leading industry experts and policy analysts to share ideas and experiences with their counterparts around the country, evaluate how policies work in other states and learn from others’ challenges.
The centerpiece of Task Force projects is ALEC model policy. ALEC is the only state legislative organization that adopts policies and creates model policies for its members to use in their states. All of ALEC’s model policies are publicly available online.

ALEC National Task Forces
ALEC’s nine National Task Forces serve as public policy laboratories where legislators develop model policies to use across the country. Task Forces also commission research, publish issue papers, convene workshops and issue briefings, and serve as clearinghouses of information on free-market policies in the states. Unique to ALEC Task Forces is their public-private partnership, a synergistic alliance that identifies issues and then responds with common sense, results-oriented policies.
Legislators welcome their private sector counterparts to the table, working in unison to solve the challenges facing the nation.
