Gov. Bill Haslam appointed state Rep. Susan Lynn to the state Workforce Development Board as one of only two members of the state legislature who may be assigned to serve on the board, according to statute.
Lynn’s appointment will run through June 30, 2016.
“The Workforce Development Board is an interesting board on which to serve, and I am very honored to have been chosen by Gov. Haslam,” said Lynn, R-Mt. Juliet. “The board aids the governor and provides him with opinions on issues concerning the expansion of employment opportunities in Tennessee and on ways to help businesses flourish.”
Lynn is a state representative for the 57th House district, chairman of the Consumer and Human Recourses Sub-Committee in the House, holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and is a regulatory compliance manager for a large international corporation that makes consumer products.
The Workforce Development Board’s stated vision is to “generate opportunities, illustrate to the private sector there is value added through partnerships, and promote Tennessee as a place where people choose to live and work.”
The board works in conjunction with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development to craft solutions that assist Tennessee’s business owners.
