STAFDA’s Executive Director, Georgia Foley, has been elected to the Board of Directors for the Council of Manufacturing Associations (CMA) of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), one of the most powerful and influential policy-setting organizations in Washington DC. Her three year term begins in January 2016. With over 1,150 manufacturers in STAFDA, Foley plans to share her CMA experience and resources with the membership.
The CMA is comprised of 260 trade associations working together on behalf of manufacturing in the United States. The CMA Board provides knowledge, resources, and guidance to help NAM broaden its reach and advocacy efforts. STAFDA has been a NAM member since 2006.
In addition to her new CMA Board assignment, Foley continues to serve on the Board of Directors for the Small Business Legislative Council (SBLC), also in Washington DC, and on the Convention Advisory Board of the San Antonio Convention & Visitors Bureau.
