June 30, 2011 – Electro-Federation Canada (EFC), a national, not-for-profit industry association, has appointed Brisette Lucas as vice president, Government Relations & Policy, effective July 11, 2011. Lucas will be a member of EFC’s senior leadership team and will report directly to Jim Taggart, president and CEO, EFC.

In this newly-developed role, Lucas will lead and coordinate EFC’s government relations and public policy initiatives in Canada.
