The Licensing Seminar is the premier event in which state regulatory staff come together to network, share best practices and develop strategies for improving their regulatory practices.

Approximately 200 state licensing staff attended this conference. At least 40 states plus the District of Columbia sent regulatory staff to the event. Attendees also included federal policy makers and technical assistance providers.
