The League receives many compliments from legislators on our attendance at Interim Meetings.  Come and help us make sure we cover every committee!  If you need a mentor, call Nickie at 801-231-7326 or Angie at 801-558-9344.

Brief descriptions of the meetings and links to their agendas are attached.

Some of the more interesting items:

Don’t forget to join us for lunch (bring your own, if you wish) in the cafeteria of the Senate Building at noon to hear reports and discuss interim meetings!! We had 13 members at our table in September—gives us great visibility!
