Save the Date: Midwest's State and Provincial Legislators Will Meet
July 21-24 in Chicago

The Midwest's largest city is getting set to host the largest gathering of state and provincial legislators from this region. The 74th Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference Annual Meeting will be held July 21-24, 2019, in downtown Chicago. This four-day event gives legislators the chance to network with one another and learn from renowned policy experts.
The lineup of featured speakers for the 2019 meeting includes best-selling historian Jon Meacham and Equal Justice Initiative founder and executive director Bryan Stevenson. The family-friendly event also includes special activities for the spouses, adult guests and children of attendees.
Illinois Sen. Elgie Sims, incoming chair of the MLC, is leading planning efforts for his home state. The MLC Annual Meeting offers countless chances to learn, collaborate and network with colleagues in a nonpartisan, welcoming environment.
Online meeting registration will open in early 2019.


2018 MLC Annual Meeting Was Held in Winnipeg, Manitoba

Four hundred state legislators, provincial lawmakers and other guests took part in the 73rd Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Legislative Conference. The nonpartisan, family-friendly event was held in July in Manitoba's capital city of Winnipeg. The meeting's location was an ideal place to advance what has become a hallmark of the MLC Annual Meeting —the building of cross-border relationships between the Midwest's states and provinces. The MLC greatly appreciates the support of its 2017 Annual Meeting sponsors and participants.
