A Message from Montana Representative Kimberly Dudik


Dear Colleagues,


It is an honor to serve as your 2019 CSG West Chair. I look forward to working with my fellow officers, legislative colleagues and other stakeholders to enhance regional collaboration and strengthen Western legislative institutions. CSG West serves as a trusted, nonpartisan organization that helps build the capacity of policy-makers and facilitates engagement on cross-cutting issues that transcend state and international borders.


The West is among the most fascinating regions in our country with its diverse population, natural resources, geography and frontier spirit. CSG West has continuously developed innovative programs and services to adapt to an ever changing legislative landscape and help meet the needs of member states and territories.


I encourage you to get involved in the important work of CSG West and urge you to utilize the services and programs available to you through this regionally-based national organization. The CSG West staff are a great resource and can provide you more information about programs and services.


I also invite you to attend this year’s CSG West Annual Meeting that will convene July 16-20 in beautiful Big Sky, Montana. We invite you to Expand Your Horizons in Big Sky as the Annual Meeting will assemble all of our policy committees and provide training opportunities for lawmakers, including insightful speakers and experts addressing topics of regional and national significance. You will not want to miss all that Big Sky has to offer with its excellent outdoor recreation and beautiful sights.


I wish you much success in 2019 and look forward to working with you.



Representative Kimberly Dudik (MT)
Chair, CSG West
