“Former Congressman Lee Hamilton and I chair the states Bicentennial commission so that will take us to the year 2016. I’m also Indiana’s new representative on the Republican national committee,” Skillman says. “Beyond that I’m considering some opportunities in international trade, economic development, agribusiness and corporate board leadership.”
