Senator Yee Named to GOPAC Legislative Leaders Advisory Board
GOPAC today named Senator Kimberly Yee one of the members of its 2017 Legislative Leaders Advisory Board. GOPAC is the largest Republican state and local political training organization.
The Board members promote the ideas they are championing by addressing elected officials, candidates and members at GOPAC events and via its digital program. In addition, they nominate a promising state legislator for the Emerging Leaders Program and provide updates on key legislative and political developments. Membership is a one-year term.
Senator Yee was named an Emerging Leader by GOPAC in April 2016. As part of that initiative, she has been involved with the organization which guides legislators across the country with leadership training learning from policy experts, veteran lawmakers and seasoned political strategists. Senator Yee will serve as Senate Majority Leader in the upcoming session.
"With Republican dominance at the federal and state levels of government, we must deliver solutions to Americans' top concerns for economic and personal security. Our Legislative Leaders Advisory Board members are integral to accomplishing this by sharing their ideas and trading best practices with elected leaders throughout the country. Further, our Advisory Board is instrumental in our success at building a healthy roster of prepared leaders ready to lead in their state legislatures and/or run for higher office,” said GOPAC Chairman David Avella.
Senator Yee represents the 20th Legislative District of northwest Phoenix and parts of Glendale. She was also recently recognized as a “Rising Star” by the Republican National Committee and spoke on opening day at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
