Capitol Connection: Drumroll, Please…Announcing the IPC Government IMPACT Awardees


Reading time ( words)

Government relations are essential to our industry as many of the policy debates taking place will have long-lasting impact on our industry. Tax and regulations reform, immigration, and environmental regulations are up for debate and it is time for our industry to take a seat at the table.  

IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2017 is our chance to be heard and we are eager to meet with key influencers in Washington D.C., May 1−3. 

During this event, we will present the IPC Government IMPACT Award to Representatives John Shimkus (R-IL) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR).

Rep. Shimkus is a senior member of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee and was a leading figure in achieving enactment of the TSCA Modernization Act, which will bring the regulation of toxic substances into the 21st century. 

Rep. Schrader was a key player on the Democratic side on the TSCA Modernization Act, and he also played an active role in organizing congressional opposition to the Obama administration’s ill-advised overtime rules. 

IPC will present the IMPACT awards to these gentlemen during a VIP dinner on May 2, and we hope you will be there to help us underscore our appreciation.  

If you are a C-level executive with an IPC member company, we suggest that you don’t miss this event. The more executives who sign up early, the stronger position we’ll be in to secure first-rate meetings. 

IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2017 presents the chance to build lasting relationships with members of Congress, meet industry executives and present a unified voice for the manufacturing industry. Register here today! 

We look forward to seeing you in D.C.  

John Hasselmann is vice president, Government Relations, IPC—Association Connecting Electronics Industries.
