2020 SLC Annual Meeting Logo

The North Carolina Host State Committee cordially invites you to the 74th Annual Meeting of the Southern Legislative Conference in Winston-Salem, where you will have an “Outlandish” experience from our mountains to our coast.

In the state’s official tartan, the weaving of landscapes, along with European, African and indigenous American cultural influences, create the tapestry of the Carolinas. Within the plaid, the panoramic views of the region are embodied by the white, yellow and red of the dogwood, poplar and maple, while the shades and tones portray the green, rolling Piedmont hills, Smoky Mountain ridges and the crowning blue of a coastal Carolina summer sky.

A Southern host promises good food, good drinks and good friends! We will have it all in 2020 - fresh seafood, eastern and western BBQ, peanuts, sweet potatoes, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, and Moravian cookies. North Carolina is famous for its vineyards and craft beer; and do not forget our homegrown soft-drinks Cheerwine, Sundrop and Pepsi-Cola! Everyone will have a good time dancing to beach music and experiencing Scottish, Cherokee, Moravian, Coastal and Farm cultures. We also will showcase our HBCU university talent and salute our military service men and women. You do not want to miss it!
