AF&PA's Donna Harman Named to Mfg. Leaders Group

Dec. 8, 2008 - American Forest & Paper Association said that its president and CEO, Donna Harman, has been named to the Board of Directors for the Council of Manufacturing Associations, a group sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers that brings together the chief executives of America’s leading manufacturing trade associations to exchange best practices, identify sector-wide issue priorities, and coordinate on public advocacy.

“Donna not only knows how Washington works but she knows her industry inside and out and she’s an expert in the myriad policy issues that impact manufacturers. When she talks about how policies will impact manufacturers, people listen and I look forward to having the benefit of her wisdom and expertise on the Board of Directors for the Council of Manufacturing Associations,” said John Engler, President and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers.

“Manufacturing is an essential part of the American economy and a significant part of AF&PA’s advocacy agenda,” Harman said. “With our economic climate, energy costs, and debates about climate change and the environment filling the policy agenda, AF&PA continues to work hard to build alliances that advance the forest products industry’s priorities. Working with other manufacturers on the Council helps us to do that more effectively. I’m glad that Governor Engler invited me to serve and I look forward to working with him and my colleagues as we tackle the work ahead.”
