“I was encouraged by my former Senior Manager, Leslie Cazas, and other NAFTZ members to serve on the Board of the NAFTZ association many years ago. After being involved in the association, I felt the need to become more fully vested and involved in the FTZ program, and serving on the Board was one way I felt I could be effective in that capacity. As a manufacturer in the FTZ program, being a member of the Board has helped my company to keep the ideas and needs of the manufacturing community visible and helped me to see more clearly how the program relates to other industries. The vast knowledge that is shared by so many experienced professionals in the NAFTZ association has been a huge bonus for me!”
