American Legislative Exchange Council to host 44th Annual Meeting in Denver

Arlington, Virginia (February 13, 2015)—The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) announced today that Denver, Colorado is the location of the 2017 ALEC Annual Meeting. The meeting brings together state legislators, business leaders, policy experts and citizen organizations to share experiences and ideas and develop research-based model policies focused on limited government, free markets and federalism.

“We look forward to hosting the 2017 Annual Meeting in Denver and to share and discuss the principles of limited government, free markets and federalism with one another,” said Texas State Representative Phil King, ALEC National Chair.

During the three-day conference, members will participate in training sessions and attend policy workshops and task force meetings. Attendees will also hear from several keynote speakers.

“Our Annual Meeting is a time for ALEC members to convene and share ideas and discuss what is happening in their states,” said ALEC CEO Lisa B. Nelson. “Learning from the successes and failures of policies tried in other states helps legislators when looking for ideas to solve problems they are facing back home.”

The American Legislative Exchange Council is a 501(c)(3) educational organization that provides nonpartisan research, study and analysis. ALEC facilitates interaction between public and private sector leaders, think tanks and citizen groups through meetings and model policy development.
