FYI, the Alabama Law Institute offers an orientation for legislators at the beginning of each quadrennium.

Thank you, Julie. Yes, most legislatures offer orientation to members (and especially new members)in advance of legislative sessions similar to the excellent programs provided in Alabama. However, I don't know of any that formally offer an orientation exclusively targeted at helping new leaders (or new staff directors, for that matter)do their job. However, as I mention in the blog, I'm certain that most chamber's chief clerks provide plenty of pre-session advice on procedure, presiding and probably politics, too.
