Welcome to the 76th Annual Southern Legislative Conference! The Southern Legislative Conference (SLC) is the largest regional gathering of legislative members and staff. SLC boasts an array of well-established programs, features noted policy experts and highly sought-after speakers and provides a forum for state legislators to discuss future government and policy innovations and ideas within a diverse, energized environment. SLC has the longest standing presence in the South as a meeting of legislative fellowship and an ideas-in-action hub for Southern leaders. At SLC, we focus on issues here at home, right in the very backyards of our member States.
