The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) has announced that Patrick Micalizzi, Vice-President of Global Food and Beverage for National Amusements Theatres, has been appointed to the position of Vice President on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors. Micalizzi will fill the vacancy created by the sudden passing of Bill LeClair in November of 2023.
