The first woman to lead the association in its 40-year history, Liz Clark brings a wealth of experience in running associations and navigating the labyrinthine hallways of power in Washington, D.C. After achievements at both the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Confectioners Association, Clark is eager to roll up her sleeves and lead the industry to greater levels of influence at home and abroad.

“As someone who has worked for an association for a long time, I know the challenge is communicating that the role of the association is to do for the industry what companies and brands can’t do for themselves.”
