Vonda McDaniel, serves as President of this Central Labor Council.  A native Nashvillian, she grew up in First Baptist Church at Capitol Hill where her family remain active members.  The church was an early center of organizing during the Civil Rights movement and the legacy and memory of that movement helped shape her belief from early on that ordinary people can make extraordinary change.

Vonda has been a member of the United Steel Workers Local 1055 since 1992.  For 10 years she served the members of that local by administering member benefits and helping members navigate benefits and services.

Vonda holds a bachelors degree in Business Administration from TSU and is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She also serves on the board of Music City Center, as well as the State Federation and Central Labor Council Advisory Committee.
