Conn. Finds New Nonprofit Liaison - NPQ – Nonprofit Quarterly - Promoting an active an engaged democracy.
Conn. Finds New Nonprofit Liaison - NPQ – Nonprofit Quarterly - Promoting an active an engaged democracy.: When Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy appointed former State Rep. Deb Heinrich to a cabinet-level position as the state’s nonprofit liaison, no other such position existed in the U.S., according to Heinrich. The goal of the new position was to improve the relationship between the state and its nonprofit partners, as NPQ has previously reported. After a stint, which included the creation of an office that developed efficiencies to ensure more on-time payments from the state to nonprofit contractors, Heinrich stepped down earlier this year, and now Malloy has appointed her replacement: Alyssa Goduti.
