Malliotakis Named Chair of National Foundation For Women Legislators
Assembly member Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I-Brooklyn/Staten Island) was named New York State Director of the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) for the year 2018 yesterday.
The NFWL aims to empower and inspire elected women to become thought leaders who shape America’s future by providing strategic resources to elected women for leadership development, an exchange of diverse legislative ideas, and effective governance through conferences, state outreach, educational materials, professional and personal relationships and networking.
As a State Director, Malliotakis will serve as a point of contact for elected women in New York, and work to bring more elected women the opportunities and resources that NFWL has to offer. This year she is concentrating her efforts on recruiting a co-chair to help expand the presence of NFWL within the state of New York. Malliotakis has begun serving in her new position and will hold this office through the end of 2018.
The announcement was made on March 19, which also marked National Women In Public Office Day. On Monday, the State Assembly also adopted Malliotakis’ Women In Public Office Resolution.
“I want to thank NFWL for selecting me to coordinate their efforts in the State of New York. I am honored to serve my colleagues as State Director and will focus on growing the membership of this remarkable organization and encourage women to step into elected positions across our state,” said Malliotakis.”
