WASHINGTON, D.C.—The National Association of Broadcasters has announced that Anna Chauvet has joined the NAB as vice president of public policy, where she will report to Shawn Donilon, executive vice president of government relations.

“Anna enjoys sterling credentials as an expert in copyright law, including deep knowledge of the music licensing regime,” said NAB president and CEO Gordon Smith. “Broadcasters will benefit from her experience as the industry navigates a range of critical policy issues affecting radio and television. We are excited to welcome her to the NAB team.”

During her time with the Copyright Office, Chauvet worked on a wide range of legal and policy matters, including spearheading four rulemakings to implement provisions of the Orrin G. Hatch–Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act (MMA).

Before joining the Copyright Office, Chauvet worked in private practice representing entertainment, banking and technology clients on copyright, trademark and patent matters.
