April showers have not dampened our stride here at CSG South. The early spring months are making way for summer heat as the clock blazes nearer to our annual Southern Legislative Conference in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma! If you have not registered already, the time is now – early bird registration ends May 26. To register for SLC, please follow this link. To look at the brochure, including the schedule of events and important deadlines, please visit here.
While we continue to process registrants and fine-tune events for the Annual Meeting, state visits are still fully underway! This month, the CSG South team flew to mighty Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and the “modern gateway” itself and 2022 host of the SLC, Oklahoma, to meet with members to discuss their concerns, field policy requests, and connect with newly elected officials.
In truth, a large part of our work during state visits is grounded in those very policy research requests members like you have for our team, and we love to dive right in! Since January 1, our policy analysts have received nearly 100 information requests, ranging from creative solutions to addressing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, tax cuts/reforms, to policy solutions to mitigate workforce shortages. We encourage all members to leverage our extensive network and internal expertise – during and after – your legislative sessions.
As always, we thank you for your continued hard work representing your constituents, and we wish you the best of luck in the busy weeks ahead.
