RESTON, Va. (May 12)—Reacting to member opinion and its own perceived needs, the Tire Association of North America has decided to "renew its commitment" to government affairs efforts and announced the hiring of Rebecca MacDicken, former director of legislative affairs at the National Roofing Contractors Association, as director of government affairs. MacDicken also spent five years working with Congress as a legislative aide in the House Committee on Small Business. TANA had shut down its government affairs program in late 1998 as a cost-cutting measure.
