Professional Development

CSG Midwest, through its staffing of the Midwestern Legislative Conference and other interstate and binational groups, offers several opportunities for legislators, legislative staff and state officials  to further develop their professional skills and deepen their understanding of public policy.

Legislators take part in a BILLD session.

The Bowhay Institute for Legislative Leadership Development (BILLD) is the only leadership training program designed exclusively for Midwestern legislators. BILLD helps newer legislators develop the skills necessary to become effective leaders, informed decision-makers, and astute policy analysts.
