The President today announced his intent to appoint Lynn Munroe Bragg as Chair and Marcia E. Miller as Vice Chair to the International Trade Commission.
Ms. Lynn Munroe Bragg, of Chevy Chase, Maryland, is currently serving as Vice-Chair of the International Trade Commission. Ms. Bragg has served as a Commissioner since March 31, 1994.

From 1981 to 1991, Ms. Bragg served on the staff of former Senator Malcolm Wallop (R-WY). In that position, she worked extensively on energy, tax, and trade issues as the legislative director and a legislative assistant. Before joining Senator Wallop's staff, Ms. Bragg held several positions in the corporate affairs department of the Potomac Electric Power Company (PEPCO) in Washington, D.C. Ms. Bragg holds an M.A. from Boston University and a B.A. from Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
