Congratulations on your election to the 2019-2020 Session of the General Assembly!

The New Member Orientation program is scheduled for November 26-27, 2018.  Orientation will begin at 9:15 am with registration opening at 7:15 a.m. in the main lobby, Room 10 and Room 11 of the State House in Montpelier.

The purpose of the orientation program is to provide you with information on the organization of the Legislature, its procedures, caucuses, committees, budgeting processes, scheduling, and many other matters relating to your service in the General Assembly.  It is also a chance to meet some of the Legislature’s staff, and one another.

If you wish to stay overnight on Sunday, Monday and/or Tuesday nights, the cost of your lodging will be covered.  Please call Capitol Plaza to make your own reservation and reference “Snelling Center New Member Orientation” as they are holding a block of rooms for this event. Reservations should be made by November 14th.
