NATIONAL SERVICE: Branstad Creates Council

Posted on: 1:16 pm, February 17, 2014, by


Gov. Terry Branstad signed an executive order Monday, creating the Governor’s Council on National Service in Iowa.

Leaders from state agencies, higher education, and the private sector will make recommendations on how to expand national service and volunteer opportunities for Iowans.

It complements the national initiative, the Franklin Project, which is working to renew active citizenship in the country.

“We think this next step, working with this Franklin Project and with this national effort positions Iowa to be a real leader and others will copy us,” says Branstad.

The council is part of the Branstad-Reynolds administration’s goal of making Iowa a volunteering leader.
