“We need women now more than ever to start stepping into positions of influence in government. I’m proud to be partnering with an organization that has a long history of reinforcing female leaders,” said Fukumoto.

“We are so proud that Representative Fukumoto has accepted a leadership position in our Foundation,” stated Minnesota State Senator Carrie Ruud, NFWL’s 2017 Chair. “NFWL’s theme for 2017 is leadership and Representative Fukumoto exemplifies this theme. She will play a key role in aiding elected women in Hawaii, as we continue to grow as an organization.”

Elected women from across the country will gather in Minneapolis, Minnesota from November 14-18, for NFWL’s 2017 Annual Conference to identify effective solutions to some of the nation’s most timely and pressing issues. Fostering 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.
