Leadership Council Chairs

NAPEO's Leadership Council Chairs

NAPEO's 20 Leadership Councils (LCs) provide local forums for members to network and participate in state government affairs initiatives. The Leadership Councils routinely meet via conference call and in person to provide valuable input on local policy, coordinate grassroots efforts, discuss government affairs and legislative activities, and act as the voice of the NAPEO membership in a particular state or region.

NAPEO's LCs are led by a team of Leadership Council Chairs who represent the local members' interests on the Government Affairs Committee. The LC Chairs are also invited to participate in NAPEO's Board Meetings to serve as liaisons between the local membership and the national leadership team.
