Governor Laura Kelly appointed Kristi Brown, Topeka, to the Workers Compensation and Employment Security Review Boards Nominating Committee.

The committee makes nominations pertaining to vacant positions in the Workers Compensation Division, the Workers Compensation Review Board and the Employment Security Board of Review.

“Workers compensation claims are important, and the process demands that we have qualified individuals involved in choosing the best possible candidates for these boards,” Kelly said. “Kristi will be a strong contributor in that regard.”

Brown has been the senior director of government affairs for the Kansas Chamber of Commerce since 2017, and has worked in government affairs for 20 years.

Brown will be representing the Kansas Chamber of Commerce on the board. She received her Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Memphis in 1997 and is a 2018 graduate of Leadership Kansas.

The committee is composed of seven members, all appointed by the governor.
