CSG New Legislative Leader Bootcamp

In early 2023 and on the heels of the 2022 Midterm Elections, the New Legislative Leader Bootcamp will equip new legislative leaders with knowledge on the legislative institution, separation of powers, ethics and civility as well as capacity training. The program will be held over the course of a weekend in early 2023 (Friday evening through Sunday evening).
