Kraig R. Naasz, president and ceo of the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI), has been reappointed to serve on the US Chamber of Commerce Association Committee of 100 (C-100).

Founded in 1958, the C-100 is comprised of the nation’s leading trade association chief executives and serves as the primary policy-originating body for the US Chamber of Commerce. The committee also enhances the Chamber’s lobbying and coalition efforts, and works to expand the organization’s outreach to the business and trade association communities.

The C-100 meets twice a year, typically in June and December, and is currently chaired by American Beverage Association President and CEO Susan Neely.

“AFFI, on behalf of its more than 500 members, greatly values its working relationship with the US Chamber of Commerce,” said AFFI Chairman Paul Bakus of Nestlé USA.
