NBWA's Christman Elected to Continue Service on State Government Affairs Council Board of Directors
NBWA’s Senior Director of State & Industry Affairs David Christman has been elected to serve an additional two-year term on the Board of Directors of the State Government Affairs Council (SGAC). SGAC is the premier national association for multi-state government affairs professionals. Christman was first appointed to serve on the board in 2011.
When asked about his election to the board of SGAC, Christman stated, “I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to continue my service on the SGAC Board of Directors. From our officers to my fellow board members, this is truly an all star line-up of state government affairs professionals that I’m proud to be a part of.”
“As a proponent of state-based alcohol regulation, it’s important that NBWA builds and maintains close working relationships with all of these state organizations, which often are the source of policies that later find their way into state capitols across the country,” Christman added.
Christman is joined on the 12-person board by government affairs professionals from Walmart Stores, Inc., Toyota Motor North America, the Personal Care Products Council, US Foods, Philips, International Paper and other leading corporations and trade associations from across the country. Along with the five officers of SGAC, the board determines the strategic plan of SGAC, makes decisions on future programming and controls the group’s finances.
The State Government Affairs Council is the organization of state government relations professionals of over 185 major US corporations and trade associations. SGAC's key strategies are to conduct educational activities that benefit members of the Council, legislative and public policy organizations and their members, strengthen interaction and understanding between and among SGAC members and state government officials, and champion professional and ethical standards in government relations.
