Washington, DC – Women In Government, a national non-profit, nonpartisan membership organization representing women state legislators since 1988, approved the 2019 Board of Directors at its October board meeting in Washington, DC. State Representative Christie Carpino was named to the board at the conclusion of the meeting.

Taking on a leadership role with this bipartisan group of legislators will allow me to continue focusing on important legislative issues while also promoting the role of women within government,” said State Representative Christie Carpino.
Carpino became involved with Women In Government during her first term at the General Assembly in order to exchange ideas and best practices with other legislators nation-wide.
