REP Joelle Martin to Represent NH at State Legislative Leaders Foundation Program 7/20/18
Last week I had the opportunity to meet with State Legislators from across the country. (See the full press release below). The State Legislative Leaders Foundation hosted their annual Emerging Leaders Program at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business. I had the unique opportunity to represent our great state of New Hampshire and was honored to participate. This unique program “recognizes the importance of state legislators as consensus builders and facilitators of compromise and aims to develop the leadership potential of emerging policy leaders for the challenges of the 21stcentury.”
“I am very pleased and proud that Representative Joelle Martin has been selected to attend the prestigious Emerging Leaders Program to be held this summer at the University of Virginia,” stated Representative Shurtleff.
Spending the week at Darden with this bright and dedicated group of state legislators — studying and discussing today’s economic and social issues and challenges with them — was invaluable.
It was rewarding to find common ground and connect as politically, socially and culturally diverse policy makers.
We not only shared policy challenges and potential solutions but connected personally as well. I am truly thankful for this opportunity that allowed me to connect with my esteemed colleagues from across our nation, and for the new friendships that will last a lifetime!

Joelle Martin to Represent NH at State Legislative Leaders Foundation Program
Every July the State Legislative Leaders Foundation hosts up to 50 of the “best and brightest state legislators from across the nation” to participate in their Emerging Leaders Program. Milford’s State Representative, Joelle Martin, has been selected to represent New Hampshire at the Foundation’s Emerging Leaders Program this year.
The State Legislative Leaders Foundation relies on the recommendations of each state’s leadership – House Speaker, Senate President, and House and Senate Minority Leader – to nominate first- and second-term legislators to apply for the program. The selection committee makes their final decision based on a candidate’s demonstrated capacity as a state legislator, dedication to public service, and potential to serve as a next generation legislative leader.
NH House Minority Leader Steve Shurtleff nominated Rep. Martin to represent New Hampshire at the event. “I am very pleased and proud that Representative Joelle Martin has been selected to attend the prestigious Emerging Leaders Program to be held this summer at the University of Virginia,” stated Representative Shurtleff. “Her selection is partly in recognition of her hard work as a State Representative, as well as her ability to work across party lines for the common good.”
Held on the campus of the University of Virginia, in partnership with the distinguished Darden School of Business, the Emerging Leaders Program provides legislators from across the country with the opportunity to share their experience with a politically, socially and culturally diverse group of peers. The Foundation recognizes the importance of legislators as consensus builders and facilitators of compromise and aims to develop the leadership potential of emerging policy leaders for the challenges of the 21stcentury.
Martin looks forward to participating in the program and working with fellow legislators from across the country. “In this time of political divide, it is critical that legislators work together to solve problems and create policies that provide real solutions,” Martin said. “After completing the Emerging Leaders Program, I plan to bring back to NH the skills I acquire to help me be a better legislator and to represent my constituents more effectively.”
