Jeremy Stine, the current manager of government and public affairs for the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA), is leaving the association to take a marketing position at Stine Lumber.
Sulphur, La.-based Stine Lumber operates 13 locations in Louisiana, and is owned and operated by the Stine family.
At the NLBMDA, Jeremy Stine helped promote legislation to benefit lumberyard and building material dealers. He also wrote the "D.C. Hotline" column for Home Channel News. His new position with his family company begins May 3.
"Jeremy has brought a lot to the association over the past couple years, including increasing our presence on Capitol Hill, managing our grassroots alerts, the NLBMDA website, the NLBMDA e-updates, green updates and press releases," said Michael O'Brien, NLBMDA president and CEO. "He's also had to attend one too many deadly congressional fundraisers. He has played key roles on such issues as the EPA Lead Rule, 1099, and Homestar, among others. He will be missed, but I'm sure he will have a bright future in the industry and politics."
