U.S. Chamber of Commerce Taps Quality Float Works, Inc. Executives to Serve on Top Policy Committees
April 5, 2007
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has tapped two executives from Quality Float Works, Inc., a suburban Chicago based manufacturer, to lend their expertise on workforce development issues and public affairs. Sandra Westlund-Deenihan, President of Quality Float Works, Inc., will serve on the Education, Employment Ray Ban outlet and Training Committee (EETC) which directs policy related to all issues that affect education and workforce development. Jason Speer, Vice President and General Manager, will serve on the Public Affairs Committee, which makes the recommendation for candidates endorsed by the organization in the upcoming election year.
“One of the greatest challenges facing manufacturing is the lack of a skilled workforce, said Sandra Westlund-Deenihan. I am honored to join forces with the US Chamber of Commerce in developing a workforce development plan that creates a pipeline of workers for the manufacturing for generations to come.”
“It is imperative that Congress support a pro-growth, pro-business environment since businesses are the backbone of communities throughout this country, said Jason Speer. I will be an advocate for supporting candidates who seek to reduce taxes on families and businesses, eliminate unnecessary regulation, create jobs and stimulate our local economies.”
Both executives were selected due to their http://www.raybani.com/ advocacy on these political issues throughout their communities and public policy organizations. Sandra Westlund-Deenihan has been an outspoken advocate for creating a workforce development initiative that is employer based and collaborates with community colleges. She has organized several meetings with employers and educational leaders on this topic. Jason Speer has been an active leader on the local, state and federal levels in connecting businesses with elected officials. Just recently, Jason was elected to local office and is well versed with public affairs issues.
