Through various educational offerings like regional academies, webinars, and biannual conferences, ALEC provides a forum for members of the public and private sectors to address the tough issues and challenges facing Americans across the country. Put simply, ALEC is the nexus between the public and private sector pursuit of good policy ideas.

  • Assisting with planning and running in-person academies and issue briefings
  • Detailed legislation tracking
  • Drafting timely op-eds and blog posts
  • Policy research and summation
  • Attending local coalition meetings

Finally, you must demonstrate a strong commitment to ALEC’s mission of promoting the Jeffersonian principles of limited government, free markets and federalism.
