Host of the 71st Annual Meeting of the Southern Legislative Conference
Biloxi, Mississippi | July 29 - August 2, 2017

Phillip Gunn

Mississippi is extremely proud to host the 71st Annual Meeting of the Southern Legislative Conference. During this exciting week, we will explore many things that make the Magnolia State so special. We hope you're as excited as we are about what lies ahead.

The Annual Meeting serves as the culmination of the SLC's yearly activities and continues to be the largest single convention held within The Council of State Governments. We are proud to host the largest regional gathering of this kind. We'll be serving up our longstanding tradition of hospitality, good food, and good times; all combined with substantive programming on pressing state policy issues.

This is where we forge alliances and bonds which, collectively, strengthen the mission of the SLC.
Welcome to Mississippi. We're happy you're here.

Philip Gunn,
Speaker of the House,
Mississippi Chairman,
2017 Southern Legislative Conference Phillip Gunn
