The Speaker and Secretary of the KZN Legislature also attend annual meetings of the National Conference of State Legislatures of the United States of America.
This organisation was founded in 1975 to serve legislatures and staff of all states within the USA. However, national, provincial and local governments across the globe tackle many of the same important issues, and about 150 international delegates get together once a year to attend NCSL conferences. General and concurrent sessions, committee meetings, staff sessions and professional association meetings are open to international attendees.
The above bodies are dedicated to expanding Secretaries’ existing knowledge and to enhance their capacity in the smooth operation of parliaments and legislatures across the world, while at the same time promoting excellence, integrity and professionalism among its members.
