Midwinter Legislative Conference
During each legislative session, IAC hosts a conference in Boise, typically the first full week of February. The goal of the conference is to bring the county elected officials up to date on IAC’s legislative package, as well as other major legislative proposals affecting counties. County officials have an opportunity to visit with their legislators and provide testimony on key bills.
