NGWA CEO Named to Federal Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee

National Ground Water Assn. CEO appointed to Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee

National Ground Water Assn. (NGWS) CEO Kevin McCray, CAE, was appointed to the federal Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee (ETTAC).

The committee, which is under the U.S. Department of Commerce, is charged with developing actionable recommendations to improve the export competitiveness of environmental technologies. In addition to representing NGWA, McCray will represent the trade association segment of the nation’s environmental technology sector.

McCray’s appointment is effective immediately and runs through Aug. 18, 2016.

“Your work will strengthen our efforts under the ongoing Environmental Export Initiative, as well as the National Export Initiative,” said U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker. “My team and I look forward to working with you to advance our common goals.”

McCray said he welcomes the opportunity to generate business for the members of trade associations involved in environmental technologies.

“There are vast markets for U.S. environmental technology products and expertise, and I am committed to maximizing such opportunities for members of NGWA and other trade associations,” he said. “Our country has been a leader in addressing many environmental challenges, and what we have learned and produced as a result is very marketable to the world.”

ETTAC was established by Congress in 1994 under the Jobs Through Trade Expansion Act.
