State Directors

'12PFAW-247The Young Elected Officials Network State Directors program is designed to enhance the role of exceptionally motivated YEOs within the Network. The role of State Director is offered to YEOs who wish to take on a leadership role within the Network in their state.

Your State Director is the best resource for connecting with other YEOs and partner organizations in your region. They are also a source of information on upcoming events and opportunities from the YEO Network, and can provide you with a YEO perspective on Network programming.

State Director Program Goals:

  1. Assist in the recruitment of potential YEOs within the State Director’s state.
  2. Assist YEO staff in connecting YEOs in their state to resources available from the YEO Network.
  3. Provide connections between the YEO Network and state and local progressive organizations.
