The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), named Charles S. Konigsberg, JD, to the NEMA/MITA team as chief, strategy and policy.
Konigsberg is a 30-year budget and policy veteran, "whose bipartisan experience will bolster the NEMA leadership team with a public policy focus," NEMA said in a release. He has served in senior level positions in the U.S. Senate and White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB). He was general counsel and chief health counsel at the Senate Finance Committee under Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY), a staff attorney at the Senate Budget Committee for Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM), the Assistant Director of OMB in the Clinton White House, and Director of Congressional and inter-government Affairs at the Corporation for National and Community Service in President George W. Bush's administration.
"Konigsberg will enhance NEMA's efforts with Congress, agencies, and regulators to promote partnerships that further energy efficiency, Smart Grid, high performance buildings, and medical imaging," NEMA said.
