NCEL Point of Contact

Dylan McDowell
Acting Executive Director

Contact

NCEL is excited to announce that we have selected our 2022 State Leads — a cohort of legislators across 30 states from both major parties. This position exemplifies a dedication to sound environmental policy and a demonstrated leadership role within the Caucus. 

State Leads will assist in advancing environmental issues in their state and have a prestigious leadership role in the Caucus by coordinating relevant in-state events and introducing colleagues to NCEL. 

“NCEL’s State Leads are vital to promoting cross-state collaboration on environmental policy,” said Jeff Mauk, Executive Director of NCEL. “Having a legislator in each state to help facilitate NCEL’s work is invaluable, as they can introduce legislators to emerging environmental topics and facilitate introductions with peers across the country, creating new avenues for cooperation and sharing lessons learned.”
