SLLF is hosting private monthly virtual meetings for different cohorts of legislative leaders and members of our business advisory council. These informal, off-the-record discussions will focus on COVID-19 and its impact on the lives of the citizens of our states and the future vitality of our economy. These conversations offer a perfect chance for you to get together with other leaders to see how you can help each other.

Along with the rest of the country, SLLF is monitoring the status of this public health crisis.

The health and safety of our employees and members is our foremost concern. As this situation evolves, SLLF will make decisions about upcoming programs and we will update you as often as we can. Please know we are a resource and we are ready to help in any way we can during these uncertain times. Remember, all legislative leaders around the country are facing the same challenges you are and we are more than willing to connect you. We are all on the same team and together we will get through this.

With an abundance of caution, we have temporarily closed our home office and all of our staff will be working from home. You can email them directly or use the info@sllf.org email to reach us. We will be checking emails and voicemails regularly.
