Smith Alling Lane welcomes National Conference of State Legislatures to Seattle

In 2005, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) held their annual conference in Seattle. As an active participant in NCSL, Smith Alling Lane pulled out all of the stops to welcome the nation’s legislators to Seattle. Promoting seven of our nearly thirty clients, Smith Alling Lane hosted legislators from across the country to visit and learn in the NCSL exhibition hall. Smith Alling Lane entertained and educated legislators at seven different events throughout the week on behalf of our clients.
