Private Sector Membership

Private Sector Membership Overview

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the premier free-market organization for state legislators. We provide elected officials with a forum for continuing education and the resources they need to make sound policy based on the principles of limited government, free markets, and federalism.

Working together, American Legislative Exchange Council public and private sector members present real solutions to create a stable and predictable business environment and grow jobs, opportunity and economic security.

ALEC members work together at the intersection of policy development and real-world application. Through research, evaluation, analysis and information exchange, the American Legislative Exchange Council collaborates with government, the private sector and the public as they develop state-based policies that improve the lives of millions around the United States.

ALEC policy staff provides non-partisan research, policy analysis, expert testimony and reference materials on a wide spectrum of issues, including the Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index, the Report Card on American Education and EPA’s Regulatory Train Wreck reports.

Membership in the American Legislative Exchange Council provides business leaders the opportunity to participate in policy discussions and network with other industry experts and legislators from across the country.
