There are no written rules in any state that define the duties and responsibilities of Majority Leader.
It is very much an “on the job training” position. Majority Leaders learn from legislative traditions, or from immediate predecessors. Often, they take direction from the presiding officer of their chamber.
The Conference of State Majority Leaders gives these men and women a valuable opportunity to discuss their jobs. They learn how the job is handled in other legislatures, they discuss best practices with skilled experts, and most importantly, they get to know their peers.
Alums of the program tell us that the most valuable benefit of attending, may be the lasting friendships formed among one’s peers.
