What is Western Legislative Academy?

Each year CSG-WEST conducts a professional development training program for a select group of western state legislators in their first four years of service. The goals of the Western Legislative Academy (WLA) are to help newer legislators become more effective and to build stronger state legislative institutions. To that end, the WLA brings together a faculty of outstanding academics, nationally known corporate and public trainers to work with a small class of lawmakers who come from each of our 13 western states. Members of the Academy are selected on the basis of their dedication to public service, desire to improve personal legislative effectiveness and commitment to the institution of the legislature.
