ROSSLYN, Va., January 12, 2006. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) today announced that it has named Stephen Gold as senior vice president of Industry Programs at NEMA. Gold previously served as vice president and executive director for the Council of Manufacturing Associations of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM).
According to NEMA President Evan Gaddis, "Stephen is eminently qualified for this position. At the Council of Manufacturing Associations, he acquired special knowledge of the challenges now confronting the nation's manufacturers. He fully understands the policy-making apparatus in Washington and has shown an ability to get things done in this city. He's a great fit for NEMA."
Prior to working at NAM, Gold practiced law at Collier Shannon Scott, where he represented trade association and corporate clients on regulatory and legislative issues, including consumer protection, cyberspace law, tax policy, antitrust law, online and offline marketing practices, and energy and environmental law.
Gold's management credentials are impressive. He served as executive director of Citizens for a Sound Economy, dedicated to promoting market-based solutions to environmental challenges, and as a communications and public affairs executive for the American Hotel and Motel Association, the Commission on the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, and the Grocery Manufacturers of America.
Gold earned a doctorate in law, cum laude, from the George Mason University School of Law, a master of arts from George Washington University, and a bachelor of science, magna cum laude, from Arizona State University.
