2018 Legislative Reception and Conference - April 24 & 25, 2018
The IAPD Legislative Conference is designed to provide commissioners, directors and professionals with firsthand, up-to-date information on the association's Legislative Advocacy Program and all pending legislation affecting IAPD’s membership. State legislators, state administrative officials and other recognized authorities present the latest techniques and materials to assist commissioners and directors with the tools they need to successfully meet and talk with legislators and be more effective in the legislative arena.
The evening prior to the Legislative Conference, IAPD offers a valuable legislative networking opportunity at its Legislative Reception. This provides board members and professionals a chance to speak one-on-one with legislators in a casual atmosphere.
