2021 Virtual Legislative Issues Conference

With limitations to the number of people allowed in conference rooms, as well as the Senators themselves scaling back their in-person speaking engagements this Session, this year’s Legislative Issues Conference will be a live & interactive Zoom filled with information presented by Legislative Leaders, key Committee Chairs, and NASB Leadership.  Learn about the Legislature's priorities within Education and how NASB is engaging, as well as how NASB is supporting you to tell your school spending story through the #weLIVEhere campaign.   School spending continues to be a hot topic and we'll need those who live in, and represent their communities to be ready to tell their unique, individual story.
