Leadership Convening

Leadership Convening brings together executive directors and commissioners from state and territorial service commissions across the country to discuss high-level trends and developments, revisit strategic goals, report on association progress, and foster cross-state collaboration and best practice sharing. Leadership Convening is typically held in February each year, and registration information is sent directly to commission executive directors.
