Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin represented the marine industry at a meeting of 30 business leaders this week at the White House.

The leaders met with White House staff and Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker. Yeargin is a member of the Manufacturing Council, which advises Pritzker on the manufacturing industry.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss what the Obama administration is and should be doing to support U.S. businesses and specifically, U.S. manufacturing. The meeting lasted more than four hours and included presentations from several members of the administration.

Topics included updates and a discussion of general economic conditions, as well as the current status of U.S. manufacturing. The group also discussed ways to promote innovation, private-public partnerships, workforce development and other matters that are or should be administration priorities.

"It was great to be invited back to the White House, this time to discuss ways industry and the Obama administration can work together to support U.S. business," Yeargin said in a statement. "We were able to candidly discuss important issues in a very constructive manner; I appreciate being invited to participate."
