WASHINGTON, DC – Linda Bauer Darr, the President and CEO of the American Council of Engineering Companies, has been appointed to the Construction, Labor and Workforce Great American Economic Industry Group by President Trump. These industry groups, which span every segment of the U.S. economy, will be tasked by the White House to help chart a course forward toward prosperity as the nation emerges from the coronavirus pandemic.

“You need a plan before you can build and America’s engineering firms are ready to design a built environment that will carry the nation back into prosperity,” Darr said. “It will be critical for the President and Congress to agree on an infrastructure stimulus that will create jobs through sustained, predictive, long-term investment. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the task force to advance this critical goal.”
