State Sen. Pam Roach has been appointed to key leadership roles with the National Foundation for Women Legislators, both here and abroad.
Nominated by colleagues from states within the region during the 2010 NFWL annual conference, Roach will serve as state director for Washington.
“I am honored to represent women legislators at a national level and welcome the new challenge,” Roach said.
As state director, Roach will serve as the organization’s contact for elected women in the state and will work to support NFWL’s mission within Washington.
Roach also is chair of the organization’s International Relations Committee. Her appointment to the two posts led to her recent selection to lead a national delegation on an upcoming mission to Taiwan.
The trip takes place Saturday through May 21 and includes 20 members from various governmental organizations from around the United States. The mission is sponsored by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office, based in Washington, D.C.
Roach, a longtime member of the state Senate, represents the 31st Legislative District, which includes Enumclaw, Buckley, Wilkeson, Bonney Lake and Sumner.
