WASHINGTON – The American Wood Council (AWC) has selected Andrew “Andy” Dodson as Vice President, Government Affairs. Dodson will develop and implement the association’s government affairs strategy, and will direct and manage federal and state legislative affairs.
“In AWC’s short existence, the association has emerged as the leading voice for the wood products industry on Capitol Hill. This position is integral in maintaining our presence. I am confident Andy’s broad experience working in and with Congress will contribute to the development of legislation and regulations that demonstrate what is possible using wood,” said AWC President and CEO Robert Glowinski.
Dodson comes to AWC after working as an independent consultant and previously served in government affairs roles at the Bockorny Group and the National Beer Wholesalers Association. He also worked on Capitol Hill for House Majority Leader Richard A. Gephardt and as Communications/Legislative Director for Rep. Max Sandlin.
