Legislative Membership

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.

Model Policy

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.

Issue Analysis

Short analyses of topical issues that provide perfect preparation for talking points and media briefings.

Report Cards and Special Studies

State-by-state analyses of critical issues such as education and tax and fiscal policy.

ALEC Academies and State Issue Seminars

Throughout the year ALEC conducts issue-specific seminars in 20 to 30 state capitols. ALEC Academies are special two-day intensive programs on specific issues, featuring national experts as faculty.

Inside ALEC

This magazine for our members is published up to nine times throughout the year. ALEC members can read and learn about issues shaping public policy, the success of policy in state legislatures, and submit their own articles.

ALEC Lectures

Reprints of significant speeches and presentations made at ALEC meetings.

ALEC Website

ALEC’s website is a valuable resource to our members. Register for meetings, receive task force updates, find out what other states are doing and how their policies have been successful, and download all of our model policies.

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.
