Assemblywoman Carol Murphy was elected to the Board of Directors of the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) at the organization’s annual conference earlier this week. She is one of four new members to join the Board, which is tasked with overseeing the organization’s vision of empowering and inspiring elected women to become thought leaders who shape America’s future.
“The important ability to collaborate with women elected to office across the country has helped me be a better lawmaker as we share approaches and engage in a powerful exchange of ideas that is only possible by blurring the often complicated partisanship that is naturally present,” said Assemblywoman Murphy (D-Burlington). “The ability to work together and problem solve is the cornerstone of our democracy at its core and these friendships provide the foundation for making government work more effectively.”
Assemblywoman Murphy, who previously served as the NFWL State Director for New Jersey, is the Majority Whip for the New Jersey General Assembly and Vice-Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. She also serves on the Executive Committee of the National Conference for State Legislatures and is the national Co-Chair of the American Irish State Legislators Caucus.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be elected to this position. I look forward to working with my colleagues at NFWL to continue advancing public policy ideas and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the lives of countless people across our nation,” said Assemblywoman Murphy.
The NFWL serves as a forum for over 5,000 elected women holding office at state, county and local levels across the country to share resources for leadership development, exchange of diverse legislative ideas, and effective governance.
