Registration for State Policy Network’s 26th Annual Meeting is now open! The meeting will be held October 9-12, 2018 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

SPN’s Annual Meeting is the premier gathering of more than 1,300 people and organizations dedicated to promoting state policy solutions that strengthen communities and improve the lives of Americans. SPN’s Annual Meeting is an opportunity to be inspired, discover and develop new ideas and strategies, and connect with peers, mentors, philanthropic partners, and experts. This year, we are pleased and grateful to have two state think tank hosts—Sutherland Institute and Libertas Institute—who will introduce attendees to Utah’s local culture, food, and fun.

Is attending Annual Meeting worth it? You don’t have to take our word for it!

All board members, executives, and staff at current SPN state think tank affiliates and associate organizations are invited to attend. Registration is required and a discount is offered for Early Bird Registration. General attendees are also welcome, but they must provide a reference and pass SPN’s review process in order to register.

Because this is a private, invitation-only event, SPN reserves the right to refuse registration and entrance.
