NLPES Executive Committee and Subcommittee Members and Officers
NLPES' officers are the chair, the vice-chair and the secretary. The immediate past chair remains an ex-officio member of the NLPES executive committee for one year. He or she provides general counsel to the executive committee, and helps to plan the Legislative Summit program but does not vote in committee decisions.
The NLPES Executive Committee directs NLPES efforts relating to the NCSL Legislative Summit, the NLPES Professional Development Seminar, and other NLPES programs and activities. NLPES' executive committee is comprised of the past executive committee chair plus three officers and eight members all of whom are elected, on an alternating basis, to serve 3-year terms. About four executive committee seats are up for election each year. No more than one person from a legislative staff agency can serve on the NLPES Executive Committee at a given time.
The chair of the Executive Committee may create subcommittees and is responsible for appointing staff section members to serve on NLPES subcommittees. A NLPES Executive Committee member always serves as subcommittee chair, but anyone from the membership at large may participate and request a subcommittee appointment. The chair may also initiate special survey or research projects. Currently, NLPES has five standing subcommittees.
The 2013-2014 standing subcommittees for NLPES are:
Marcia Lindsay, Chair
Dale Carlson, Chair
Angus Maciver, Chair
