ATLANTA – State Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick (D-Lithonia) has been appointed to serve as vice chair of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators’ (NBCSL) Committee on Telecommunications, Science and Technology.
“I look forward to working on this committee and bringing my background and experience to benefit Georgians and Black Americans,” said Rep. Kendrick. “The world is changing fast, and I consider it an honor to be on the cutting edge of what’s happening and developing policy around that.”
NBCSL has 15 policy committees. These committees meet to exchange ideas, network and find solutions to issues facing all Americans. The policy committees also serve a function in the policy resolution process. Committee members deliberate and vote on resolutions, which must pass out of policy committees before they can be ratified by the full membership body at NBCSL’s Annual Legislative Conference.
NBCSL will convene its 47th Annual Legislative Conference Nov. 27 – Dec. 1, in Nashville, Tennessee.
NBCSL has more than 700 members representing more than 60 million Americans and serves as a national network and catalyst for public policy innovation, information exchange and action on issues affecting African Americans and other marginalized communities.
