Director Ray selected as Henry Toll Fellow for 2019 - 07/12/19

Department of Revenue Director Nia Ray has been named a 2019 Henry Toll Fellow. Each year, The Council of State Governments (CSG) names 48 of the nation’s top officials from all three branches of state government as fellows.

The Henry Toll Fellowship, named for CSG founder Henry Wolcott Toll, is one of the nation’s premier leadership development programs for state government officials. Each year, the fellowship gathers state leaders to strengthen their leadership and create a strong national network.

Fellowship alum Representative Janelle Bynum says this about Nia: “Oregon is investing in growing its bench of high-quality leaders and Director Ray fits the bill. Her testimonies before committees and interactions with the Legislature have garnered her an immense amount of respect among members and professional staff.”

Oregon Department of Administrative Services Director Katy Coba said, “Ms. Ray has come to be known as a leader who can advance important initiatives and move organizations forward. Part of this is attributed to her ability to engage and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, as well as to balance interests while seeking resolution to complex issues.”

Department of Revenue Deputy Director Satish Upadhyay said, “This is a huge testimony to Nia’s leadership and contributions to Oregon State Government. It’s a tremendous honor.”

Director Ray joins an elite group of past Oregon officials to receive this fellowship including judges, state legislators from both chambers, and Governor Kate Brown.

The program runs August 23–27 in Lexington, Kentucky.
