POLICY COMMITTEE TOPICS ANNOUNCED
The CSG West Annual Meeting provides a forum for our standing policy committees to meet and discuss topics important to the western region.
Be sure to check out recent updates on committee topics for the Finance & Economic Development, State & Federal Relations, Agriculture & Water, Energy & Environment, and Education & Workforce Development on our website.
CSG West is proud to celebrate the corporate sponsors whose support makes it possible for us to host events such as the 2018 Annual Meeting. This year we welcome Chevron's Salt Lake Refinery as a Gold level sponsor.
CSG is committed to providing data-driven, consensus-based resources in our efforts to support states in addressing complex public policy challenges. Supporting this goal, the Justice Center, in partnership with the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University, recently released a major publication offering six concrete strategies for juvenile justice systems to fundamentally restructure and reorient how they currently function to improve recidivism rates and other youth outcomes.
As part of our effort to provide value to western leaders, CSG West policy staff offer curated news feeds for our members and partners. Feeds include news articles, reports and events chosen specifically for their relevance to the West and our policy committees.
