Freeman Picked for U.S. Chamber Panel

Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association, was one of six executives named by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to its Association Committee of 100.

The committee, also called the C100, meets to network, build partnerships, and discuss current issues. Freeman joins the CEOs of businesses representing financial, utilities, insurance, alternative energy and auto dealers on the panel.

“These new members reflect our continued dedication to naming diverse, high-profile leaders to serve on this important committee,” said Rob Engstrom, senior vice president of political affairs and federation relations at the U.S. Chamber.

Freeman has been the head of AGA since June 2013. Prior to joining the gaming industry’s leading trade organization, he was chief operating officer of the U.S. Travel Association.
