Community College 

 National Legislative Summit

February  | 9 - 12
Summit Overview

The National Legislative Summit is the premier community college advocacy event in Washington, DC, bringing together more than 1,000 community college leaders. The event shines a spotlight on the importance of our nation’s community colleges for Congress and the Administration.

 

The National Legislative Summit is designed to inform and educate community college leaders on federal policy issues that impact postsecondary institutions and students. National Legislative Summit participants will hear from members of U.S. Congress, leading political analysts, and other high-profile speakers about the current climate in D.C., recent elections, and legislative issues impacting community colleges.

Participants also have the opportunity to network with fellow community college leaders and meet with their U.S. representatives in Congress to advocate for their support for community colleges and their students.

Featured speaker

Charlie Cook

Renowned Political Analyst and Publisher of The Cook Political Report

WHAT PEOPLE Say About NLS

Great way to get educated on federal policy issues and to meet with our congressional delegation on priorities of community colleges.

Amazing - There were so many great learning takeaways.  The opportunity was fantastic and I learned an incredible amount.  The personal development was one of the greatest experiences I have had.

Great event, dynamic times in the industry, so good to get close to the decision makers.
