Dykes Represents Dairy in US Chamber’s Committee of 100

Sep 05, 2018

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce this summer welcomed Michael Dykes, D.V.M., IDFA president and CEO, to its Association Committee of 100 (C100), a group of leading association executives that has supported American business for more than 50 years.

“I’m pleased to join this esteemed group of association leaders,” said Dykes. “Having this voice and role in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which is the world’s largest business federation, is a significant opportunity for our industry.”

Dykes will serve as the representative for the dairy industry in the group of 100 association CEOs. In the role, he’ll work to ensure the industry’s interests are well represented in broader business settings, promote dairy priorities in policy discussions within the business community and enhance the visibility and reputation of IDFA and its members.

He joins five other association leaders as new members:

  • Joshua Bolten, president and CEO, Business Roundtable
  • Victoria Espinel, president and CEO, BSA: The Software Alliance
  • Peter Gleason, president and CEO, National Association of Corporate Directors
  • Ambassador Charles Rivkin, chairman and CEO, Motion Picture Association of America
  • Robert Voltmann, president and CEO, Transportation Intermediaries Association
