Haley proceeded to the South Carolina Governor’s mansion after winning the gubernatorial election in 2010 and was reelected again as governor in 2014.  Haley gained a reputation for encouraging economic growth in South Carolina bringing the unemployment rate to a 15-year low, encouraging over $20 billion in new capital investment which included foreign capital investments, and saw job growth in every county in her state.

Our readers will know of Haley’s reputation during her time as a U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations.  At the United Nations, she introduced reforms for efficiency, transparency, and accountability and negotiated $1.3 Billion in savings.  Haley was also instrumental in setting new sanctions against North Korea.

In 2019, Haley resigned her position at the United Nations and now sits on the Board of Directors for Boeing Corporation.  She currently serves on the Boeing’s corporate audit and finance committees.

“We’re honored to welcome Ambassador Haley and look forward to learning about her experiences as she traveled the world to defend America’s interests and keep our country safe,” says Peter Miller, first vice chairman of NTEA’s Board of Directors. “During her tenure, she tackled difficult issues like national security, education, human rights and unemployment. Her strong and passionate leadership serves as an example of how even the most challenging obstacles can be overcome.”
