A principal objective of CSG Midwest is to support the efforts of the Midwestern Legislative Conference (MLC), a regional association of legislators representing 11 Midwestern states and four Canadian provinces. The purpose of the MLC is to foster cooperation among the region's policymakers through the consideration of common problems, the exchange of information and ideas, the sharing of knowledge, and the pursuit of collaborative efforts to improve state government. All 1,550 Midwestern state legislators — as well as lawmakers representing the affiliated Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan — are eligible to participate in MLC activities.
Member States, Affiliate Provinces of the MLC
The Midwestern Legislative Conference is made up of 11 Midwestern states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan are affiliate members of the MLC.
All state legislators and provincial parliamentarians representing these states and provinces are entitled to participate in MLC activities and receive MLC products and services. For more information, contact Mike McCabe.
