City Councilmember appointed to leadership position
Edmonds City Councilmember Adrienne Fraley-Monillas has been selected to serve in a leadership role for the National Foundation for Women Legislators, the nation’s oldest nonpartisan organization addressing the needs of elected women at the city, county and state levels of government.
Fraley-Monillas was recently appointed to serve on the 2017 Nominating Committee for the National Foundation for Women Legislators.
“I am honored to receive this appointment from the National Foundation for Women Legislators,” Fraley-Monillas said.
As a member of the Nominating Committee, she will contribute to all committee business by helping appoint future leaders for the foundation and preparing the board of directors’ slate to present at the 2017 annual conference.
The nominating committee ensures the proposed board of directors slate reflects the general membership, including geographically, by elected position and by party affiliation. The nominating committee also works with the chair in appointing members to committees and committee chairs.
Elected women from across the country will gather in Minneapolis Nov. 14-18 for NFWL’s annual conference to identify effective solutions to some of the nation’s most timely and pressing issues.
“We are so honored Adrienne Fraley-Monillas 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.”
Fraley-Monillas begins serving in her new position immediately and will hold this office through the end of 2017.
