WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Resources Policy Network has
announced two new volunteer directors who will advise American Resources Principal
Daniel McGroarty on the direction of the organization: Anne Darconte,
Former Director of Outreach at the National Petrochemical & Refiners
Association (NPRA), and Captain Nelson P. Jackson, U.S. Navy (Ret.),
President and principal owner of TERJAC Distribution Systems.
Anne Darconte’s twenty years of public affairs experience include the
development and management of grassroots advocacy and Get Out The Vote
(GOTV) programs for organizations in the natural resources industry
such as the NPRA, the American Chemistry Council, and the BASF
Corporation. Having focused primarily on ensuring that the U.S. has a
sustainable supply of critical resources, Mrs. Darconte’s areas of
expertise also include chemical security, international trade, and
research and development tax credit issues.
Captain Jackson’s naval career encompassed a period of twenty-five
years as a Surface Warfare Officer with at-sea assignments primarily
in the Pacific Fleet, with later assignments in the Joint Chiefs of
Staff organization and on the personal staff of the Chief of Naval
Operations as the Congressional Policy Coordinator. Subsequent to his
time in the U.S. Navy, Captain Jackson covered various issues related
to technology development for industrial preparedness as well as
international defense coordination on the staff of the American
Defense Preparedness Association (ADPA), now the National Defense
Industrial Association (NDIA).
