ALEXANDRIA, Va. — N.C. Rep. Pat Hurley has been selected to serve in a leadership role for the National Foundation for Women Legislators, the nation’s oldest non-partisan organization addressing the needs of elected women at the city, county and state levels of government.

Hurley was recently appointed to serve on the 2017 Policy Committee for the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL).

“I am honored to have been selected to serve in this capacity. I look forward to sharing ideas and serving with other women legislators throughout America.”

Hurley will help develop educational programs on policy issues, engaging with policy partners and recommending which areas of policy focus. The committee will focus on shared legislation by encouraging elected women to exchange legislative ideas.

Elected women from across the country will gather in Minneapolis, Minn., on Nov. 14-18, for NFWL’s Annual Conference to identify effective solutions to some of the nation’s most timely and pressing issues. Providing a non-partisan environment that encourages dialogue and the sharing of information and experiences, women leaders are able to build coalitions, share the concerns of their constituents and identify out-of-the-box solutions.
