Secretary-Treasurer Strzechowski Appointed to MPEA Board by Gov. Quinn 

Local 700 Secretary-Treasurer Becky Strzechowski was appointed to the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority Board on Monday. As the first Teamster appointed to this board, Strzechowski hopes to bring a balanced view to the table - one that includes the interests of working people.

"In addition to making sure the decisions of this board help improve the local economy and properly promote McCormick Place and Navy Pier, I'm also looking forward to being a voice for working people," said Strzechowski.

The MPEA appointed a total of eight board members on Monday. Gov. Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel each appointed four members. Gov. Quinn appointed Strzechowski.

The MPEA owns McCormick Place and Navy Pier. McCormick Place is the largest convention center in the nation, featuring 2.6 million square feet of exhibition space. Navy Pier also provides room for smaller scale trade shows and is also one of the largest tourist attractions in Illinois.
