C O M M I T T E E L E A D E R S H I P Government & Legislative Affairs Executive Committee Board Liaison – Andy O’Shea, Berjé Incorporated Staff – Amanda Nguyen, Director, Government Affairs & Legal Mission: • Promote programmatic educational and lobbying efforts that establish IFRANA as the most trusted, respected voice and advocate for the fragrance industry. • Develop proactive outreach to policymakers at all levels of government to influence decision-making and to demonstrate the value of the fragrance industry. • Coordinate IFRANA positions with other allied trade associations and establish strategic alliances and information networks with appropriate associations and organizations. • Liaise with other IFRANA committees and industry stakeholders to ensure advocacy and policy positions build trust for and enhance the reputation of the fragrance industry among key constituencies. Chair: Cynthia Reichard Executive Vice President of Arylessence, Inc. “I love the smell of Tabac Absolute. It has a warmth and complexity that communicates the essence of nature in a manner that portrays both its earthiness and elegance. One whiff simply transports me….to a beautiful place. (You want to smell it now, don’t you?)” True leadership is NOT comfortable… I believe that only in uncomfortable moments are we likely to step out and search for different and better answers. As an industry advocate, I support leaving our own “echo chamber” and seeking opportunities to listen and collaborate with stakeholders to implement meaningful programs that are streamlined, less complex, and truly benefit the consumers we all passionately care for.
