As president of The Builders’ Association, a trade association serving the commercial construction industry, Don serves as a management trustee on a number of Taft-Hartley Funds.

“The International Foundation is a high-power education engine addressing critical employee benefits issues,” said Don. “It is an honor to serve with a board dedicated to health plan coverage, especially with all of the changes the Affordable Care Act will bring, pension plan sustainability, and funding for skilled-workforce apprenticeship training.”
