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

The Midwestern Legislative Conference Annual Meeting is a family-friendly, regionally focused event designed to meet the needs and interests of state legislators from our 11-state region. Held in a different Midwestern city every year, the four-day event 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.
This year's MLC Annual Meeting will be held in Omaha, Neb., on July 13-16. Nebraska Sen. Beau McCoy, the incoming chair of the MLC, is leading the host state's efforts.
