The Jewelers of America Political Action Committee (JAPAC), which supports the fine-jewelry industry in Washington, D.C., has elected Jenny Caro to be its new chair.
Caro is the owner of Jewelry by Design in Woodbridge, Va. She has served on the Jewelers of America board of directors since 2013.
“I’m excited and honored to be taking over as chair of the Jewelers of America Political Action Committee,” Caro said. “Attending the JAPAC visit to Washington, D.C., last year was a real eye-opener for me, underlining how critical it is for jewelers to stay active, engaged, and in front of lawmakers. By raising awareness of JAPAC, I hope to empower other Jewelers of America members to fight for their businesses on Capitol Hill.”
“Jenny recognizes how important it is for jewelers to speak up for their businesses on Capitol Hill. We are thrilled to have her take on this new leadership role within JAPAC,” said JA president and CEO David J. Bonaparte.
She will replace current chair Scot Congress, co-owner of Congress Jewelers in Sanibel, Fla., who has held the position for three years.
