The National Confectioners Association has named a former U.S. Chamber of Commerce executive director, Liz Reilly, as its new v.p. of government affairs.
She most recently served as the executive director of special initiatives for the Chamber and managed a program that informed the business community about the U.S. public education system.
Reilly also has served as director of the Chamber’s TradeRoots Program, where she directed multi-level, pro-business coalitions to advocate on the federal and state level.
Before joining the Chamber staff in 2006, she directed international and federal programs for the National Paint and Coatings Association.
“Liz brings an impressive set of skills and knowledge to NCA’s public policy team,” says NCA President Larry Graham. “Her experience in advocacy and outreach on all levels of politics and her familiarity with trade organizations and Capitol Hill make Liz a valuable asset to the NCA and its members.”
