The MLC Annual Meeting: Regional Focus for Midwest's State Legislators

Thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to the 2014 Midwestern Legislative Conference Annual Meeting in Omaha, Neb. The four-day, family-friendly event attracted nearly 500 state and provincial legislators, their guests and interested others. Nebraska Sen. Beau McCoy, chair of the MLC, and his colleagues in the Unicameral Legislature led the planning of this year's conference.
The MLC Annual Meeting is held in a different Midwestern city every year. It features policy sessions on issues of critical importance to this region and its legislators. In addition, various activities are planned for the spouses, adult guests and children of meeting attendees.
The 2015 MLC Annual Meeting will be held in Bismarck, N.D., on July 12-15. Details on next year's conference will begin to be posted soon.
