(ALEXANDRIA, VA) – Councilwoman Stephanie Lynch 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 all the city, county, and state levels of government.
Lynch was recently appointed to serve on the 2017 International Outreach Committee for the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL).
“The international community has long recognized the diverse economic and cultural assets of Shreveport, Caddo Parish, and the state of Louisiana. I look forward to working with partners across the globe on behalf of our great city,” said Lynch.
As a member of the International Outreach Committee, Councilwoman Lynch will contribute to all committee business by identifying, developing, and implementing international focused projects. Using their expansive network of connections in areas across the world, International Outreach Committee members establish relationships with individuals, organizations, corporations, and government officials in regions outside the United States to identify and assess international travel opportunities. The committee is also responsible for selecting trip participants and building a transparent set of criteria for making this selection.
Elected women from across the country will gather in Minneapolis, Minnesota November 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 to the most pressing issues facing their communities today.
“We are so honored Councilwoman Lynch has accepted a leadership position in our foundation,” shared Minnesota State Senator Carrie Ruud, NFWL’s 2017 Chair. “She will play a crucial role in the continued success of NFWL, as we embark on our most exciting year yet.”
Lynch begins serving in her new position immediately and will hold this office through the end of 2017.
