This page serves as a hub for recent information about IPPSR's Legislative Staff Training Program -- established for legislative staff members at work in the Michigan House of  Representatives, the Michigan Senate or the state's nonpartisan Fiscal Agencies.

The program is designed to help staff members advance in their careers, whether they are seeking a new challenge as part of their current position or seeking to move to a policy position.

Each session includes authoritative panels sharing the latest developments in commanding political issues, small-group discussions, professional development workshops with hands-on activities and fast-paced roundtables facilitated by expert leaders on a variety of subjects.

We hope you'll take advantage of these informational opportunities.
