WASHINGTON – The National Association of Manufacturers has appointed Pamela Kan, president of Bishop-Wisecarver Corp. of Pittsburg, CA, to the group’s board of directors. As a board member, Kan said she will influence the policies the group promotes on Capitol Hill.

She will also continue her work with NAM’s Employment and Workforce working group. The working group, a team of 25 business leaders, drives education and job training initiatives presented to congressional leaders.

“Students don’t hear about the opportunities available in manufacturing and they don’t hear about the level of skill it takes to operate sophisticated machinery used in today’s factories,” Kan said. “My goal as a NAM board member is to increase the priority, funding and support of career and technical education in high schools.”
