Arkansas Lt. Governor Mark Darr (R) was recently chosen to serve on the leadership committee of the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA).

NLGA is the professional association for the officeholders first in line of succession to governor in all 50 states and the U.S. territories.

Darr will serve as the South Region, Republican-at-Large member of the NLGA Executive Committee.

“The lieutenant governor was appointed this position in consideration of his contributions to the bi-partisan work of NLGA,” said NLGA Executive Director Julia Hurst.

The committee meets about three times a year and is responsible for charting the course of issues and work to be pursued by the nation’s second-highest state and territorial officeholders.  In addition to its specific duties, the committee will also address issues of mutual concern to all members.  Darr will serve until July of 2012 at which time he is eligible for re-appointment.
