Capitol Connection: IMPACT Update—To CEOs on Why You Should Attend IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2017


Reading time ( words)

Here at IPC, we place a high priority on making our presence known in the halls of government, because so many policy debates have a direct effect on the electronics manufacturing industry. 

We work around the clock to advocate on behalf of our industry. But our best spokespersons are you. 

Limited to senior executives of IPC member companies, IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2017 is a chance to join with fellow industry executives in advocating for better public policies for a stronger, more advanced manufacturing economy. 

But don’t just take our word for it; take a look at what our member company executives had to say about IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2016: 

  • Nilesh Naik, CEO of Eagle Circuits: “This is the one time of the year where you get a chance to meet your congressman and talk about your industry. It’s amazing, they’re eager to listen and learn, but you’ve got to come tell them. If you don’t, you miss out on it.” 
  • Matt Turpin, CEO of Zentech: “I think it’s [IMPACT] given me a better appreciation for the process and what goes into shaping policy.” 
  • Bhawnesh Mathur, president and CEO of Creation Technologies: “This event is important because it gives me a chance to meet my colleagues—people and companies that do what I do. We get a chance to discuss our issues and challenges and how we should react to them as a common industry.” 
  • Faisal Pandit, president of Panasonic Factory Solutions: “This is my first year at IMPACT, and I’ve got to tell you: it has been very exciting and a great opportunity for me to take in a lot of valuable information.”
