Women's Legislative Network Governance

Review the Network bylaws.

Executive Board 2019-2021*

The Network is governed by a 15-member board of directors that is politically and regionally balanced. The role of president alternates between a Democrat and a Republican each year. The board makes decisions about programming and events and encourages other women legislators to get involved with the Network and NCSL.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which resulted in the cancellation of the 2020 NCSL Legislative Summit, the governing board past an emergency resolution in July 2020 to extend the officer's term by one year.
