WASHINGTON, DC – From the presidential nominating calendar to new state laws for voting and the future of voting systems, the nation’s Secretaries of State will focus on 2012 election preparations at their 94th annual summer conference on July 10 through 13 at The Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, West Virginia.
The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) Business Identity Theft Task Force will also meet with federal law enforcement representatives and others who are looking to help states prevent this relatively new and rapidly spreading type of fraud.
Besides elections and business services, state officials from across the nation will exchange information and programming ideas on state heritage and museums, securities, international relations, social media and other issues of common interest.
The four-day event will conclude with the induction of the association’s national officers for the 2011-2012 cycle. Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman will be sworn in as NASS president on Wednesday, July 13.
