Chair,
Women In Government Board of Directors
WIG congratulates two of our national Board of Directors who were appointed Delegates for their respective party conventions: Chair Senator Stacy Guerin (R-ME) for the RNC convention and Southern Region Director Senator Gloria Butler (D-GA) for the DNC convention. Follow WIG’s website and social media for updates on the Life of a Delegate in 2020 throughout August.
 
The 2020 conventions may go down as the most unique in history, given the pandemic’s impact on travel and engagement. While primarily virtual, the conventions remain showcases for current and emerging leaders. Women In Government is a nonpartisan organization that celebrates women political leadership.
