WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Representative Elizabeth Coggs (D-Milwaukee) has
been selected to serve in leadership for the nation’s oldest
organization addressing the needs of elected women at all levels of
government.

Coggs was recently selected to serve as Regional Director for Region 4 for
the National Order of Women Legislators (NOWL), which was founded in
1938 and serves as the membership arm of the National Foundation for
Women Legislators (NFWL), at the 2011 NFWL Annual Conference, this
year hosted in Des Moines, Iowa. Region 4 covers Iowa, Illinois,
Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. “I am honored that my
colleagues from across the nation have selected me for this esteemed
position within the Foundation’s leadership. I look forward to
building stronger relationships with elected women throughout the
region, across state lines, and include them in the many important
programs and initiatives that the National Foundation for Women
Legislators offers,” stated Coggs. Hundreds of elected women
gathered in Iowa August 11-15 for NFWL’s Annual Conference to
identify effective solutions to some of the nation’s most timely
and pressing issues. Providing a non-partisan environment that
encourages dialogue and the sharing of information and experiences,
women leaders are able to build coalitions, share the concerns of
their constituents, and identify out-of-the-box solutions to the most
pressing issues facing their communities today.

We are so proud of Representative Coggs and all that she has
accomplished,” stated Robin Read, NFWL’s President & CEO. “We
are looking forward to her leadership in the Foundation and I know
she will make this year one of the most exciting and productive years
that NFWL has seen.”

Coggs begins serving in her new position immediately, and will hold this
office through 2012, when the Foundation hosts NFWL’s Annual
Conference next fall, November 15.
