GEORGETOWN – State Rep. Ruth Briggs King, R-Georgetown, has been selected to serve in a leadership role for the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL), the nation’s oldest non-partisan organization addressing the needs of elected women at the city, county, and state levels of government.
Rep. Briggs King was recently appointed to serve on the 2017 Bylaws Committee for the NFWL.
As a member of the Bylaws Committee, Rep. Briggs King will contribute to all committee business by considering proposed amendments and submitting a report at the annual conference in November.
The committee will also review the existing bylaws, recommend changes, present subsequent changes at the annual general membership meeting, and ensure the organization is in compliance with the bylaws.
“Through 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,” said Rep. Briggs King.
“We are so honored that Rep. Briggs King has accepted a leadership position in our foundation,” said 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.”
Rep. Briggs King begins serving in her new position immediately and will hold this office through the end of 2017.
