The SLLF Directors and Advisory Council met in Scottsdale, Arizona, December 5 – 7, for the Foundation’s annual Leadership Roundtable and Board Meeting.

This meeting was a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our friends in both formal and informal settings. We are pleased that during our roundtable discussions our guest speaker was Emeritus Professor of History, James I. Robertson, Jr., an authority on the Civil War. Professor Robertson's presentation was thought provoking and inspiring and made us all reflect on the vital importance of knowing and appreciating the history of our nation.

2014 has been an exceptional year for SLLF. Our programs have been well attended and our subject matter has been timely. By year’s end, legislative leaders from every state in the nation will have participated in at least one of our educational programs and with the lineup we have planned for 2015, we fully expect to again set new attendance records.

All in all, a perfect capstone to another fine year!
