AFL-CIO NAMES NEW DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC AFFAIRS

 WASHINGTON, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust Monday named Dennis Beal as its director of public affairs.
 Beal is currently AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland's assistant for communications.
 The appointment comes as the Housing Investment Trust begins an unprecedented drive that will see 1 billion dollars worth of affordable housing built in 25 cities over the next five years.
 The program -- National Partnership for Community Investment -- will match $500 million of Housing Investment Trust funds with a like amount from federal, state and local governments and private investors.
 The trust administers pension funds from more than 350 international, national and local unions. Its chief executive officer is Stephen Coyle.
 Beal has served as Kirkland's assistant for four years. Before coming to the AFL-CIO, Beal was press secretary for the United States Senate Budget Committee under Chairman Lawton Chiles (D-Fla.).
 "The Housing Investment Trust has rapidly developed into a major and important program which has insured that the AFL-CIO is on the front lines in the struggle to build quality, affordable housing and to help deal with this country's serious housing needs," Kirkland said.
 "The establishment of the position of director of public affairs is the next logical step in the extension of this program. Dennis Beal has served the federation well and his talents will give a tremendous boost to the trust," he concluded.
 Housing Investment Trust is located at 1717 K Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006, 202-331-8055.
