 ADAMS ELECTED SGAC PRESIDENT;
 LEADERSHIP CHANGES AT 1992 ANNUAL MEETING
 WASHINGTON. Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Linda A. Adams, government affairs director for AT&T, Denver, has been elected the 1992-1993 president of the State Governmental Affairs Council (SGAC).
 In 1983, Adams was one of the first government relations professionals hired by AT&T to explain divestiture and its policy implications to legislators and members of Congress.
 Prior to joining AT&T, Adams enjoyed a 15-year career in public service, beginning as an administrator at the University of California. In 1972, she moved to Illinois and was a program analyst with the Illinois Economic and Fiscal Committee. Four years later, she became the director of legislative program review and investigations in the state of Connecticut.
 Adams served on the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Executive Committee from 1977-1979 and chaired the NCSL Legislative Program Evaluation Section from 1975-1977. In 1979, she joined the staff of NCSL in Denver as the director of administration and finance.
 In accepting the gavel from outgoing SGAC President John T. Gould Jr., Unilever United States, Inc., New York, Adams stated: "I think we are on the brink of one of the most exciting times in government -- certainly in our lifetime." She urged members to: "Learn how to use SGAC to help you do the jobs you're paid to do. The opportunities, once understood in the context of the way NCSL and CSG operate, are indeed satisfying."
 At SGAC's annual meeting, held in conjunction with the NCSL Annual Meeting, D.H. (Jack) Brewer, Olin Corporation, Cleveland, Tenn., was elected as SGAC vice president; Other elected officers include: treasurer, John H. Brown, Amway Corporation, Ada, Mich., and secretary, Pati Otley, Burlington Resources Inc., Seattle. Gould will continue to serve on the SGAC executive committee as immediate past president.
 Those individuals elected for two-year terms on the SGAC board of directors were: Jerry Chambers, American Cyanamid Company, Washington; Tom Hardeman, United Parcel Service, Washington; John Hibbert, IBM Corporation, Washington; Stephen Lemson, American Express Company, New York; O. Keith Owen III, BP America, Houston; and Judith H. Smeltzer, FMC Corporation, Philadelphia.
 SGAC is the organization of state government relations directors of over 115 major corporations and trade associations. SGAC was formed in Oct. 1975 as an outgrowth of the Public Affairs Committee of the National Society of State Legislators. The organization works to enhance state government activities by stimulating opportunites for constructive interaction between the public and private sectors. SGAC does not influence the passage or defeat of legislation, but rather focuses its efforts on strengthening state public policy, processes and programs by providing assistance for meritorious projects, sponsoring issues seminars and encouraging information exchange.
 Re-elected to the SGAC board for second two-year terms were: Marie Chelli, Joseph E. Seagram & Sons, Inc., Washington; and Kirby T. Hannan, Corning Lab Services Inc., Teterboro, N.J.
 Those individuals continuing on the SGAC board are: Richard M. Arnold, Allied-Signal, Inc., Morristown, N.J.; Michael A. Donahue, McDonald's Corporation, Oak Brook, Ill.; Evelyn Jarvis-Ferris, Shaklee Corporation, San Francisco; and Barry M. Smyth, Procter & Gamble Company, Cincinnati.
 Over the years, SGAC has crafted an effective channel of communication to state organizations and officials through its liaison structure with state government organizations such as the NCSL and the Council of State Governments (CSG). The NCSL president, Sen. Paul Bud Burke of Kansas, and the CSG chairman, speaker John Connors of Iowa, addressed the SGAC membership at the annual meeting.
 The 1993 SGAC annual meeting will be held in July in San Diego.
