DALTON—The Carpet & Rug Institute director of government relations Jennifer Mendez has been chosen to serve as the 2011/2012 secretary to the board of directors of the State Government Affairs Council (SGAC), a national association for multi-state government affairs professionals. Mendez, who has served on the SGAC board since 2008, was elected to the position by SGAC membership in August at the group’s annual meeting in San Antonio.
