August 13, 2015

Last week at the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) 2015 Legislative Summit in Seattle, lawmakers from around the country elected House Majority Leader Joe Aresimowicz (D-Berlin/Southington) to serve on the 2015-2016 NCSL Executive Committee.

“We are pleased to have Representative Aresimowicz’s expertise on NCSL’s Executive Committee,” said NCSL President Curt Bramble, Utah Senate President Pro Tempore. “His participation in NCSL over the years has been a great advantage to the organization and NCSL will certainly benefit from his appointment to the executive committee.”

The NCSL Executive Committee is the governing body of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Comprised of 63 elected members, the Executive Committee drives the organization by supervising and controlling the affairs of the Conference, its committees, and publications, as well as deciding the organization’s ultimate positions on matters of public policy.

“I am honored to be selected to serve on the NCSL Executive Committee,” said Aresimowicz. “Being able to exchange ideas and learn from legislators and leaders from across the country will be a tremendously valuable experience that I can utilize to represent my constituents in Berlin and Southington and as House Majority Leader.”

The Executive Committee meets four times a year to oversee the development and implementation of NCSL policies.

Aresimowicz has been an active member of the National Conference of State Legislatures throughout his tenure as a state legislator and the organization has benefited from his expertise and pragmatism over the years.

The National Conference of State Legislatures is the bipartisan organization that serves the legislators and staff of the states, commonwealths and territories. It provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues and is an effective and respected advocate for the interests of the states in the American federal system.

Joe Aresimowicz is serving his sixth term representing the 30th Assembly District of Berlin and Southington in the Connecticut General Assembly, where he is House Majority Leader.
