    - Providing training and briefing materials on a few top legislative priorities; and
    - Coordinating onsite logistics for your entire Legislative Summit experience.

    January 21, 2019 – room cut-off dates
    Due to the legislative session, numerous political activities, and demand for sleeping rooms during this time, we urge you to make a room reservation early. Remember, it is easier to cancel a room reservation than to secure a room after the room cut-off date.  Austin is very busy when the Legislature is in session and with the high demand of other corporate and association meetings.
