As IPC continues to advance your interests in the halls of government, we are ready to make IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2018 our best U.S. advocacy event yet.
IMPACT Washington, D.C. is an invaluable part of our government relations program, bringing together industry executives and influential policymakers for candid conversations about the policy issues that affect our industry. In today’s noisy political climate, it is more important than ever to build relationships and make our voices heard on Capitol Hill and in the Executive Branch.
During this two-and-a-half-day event, you have the opportunity to:
- Collaborate and network with industry executives who share your commitment to the success of our industry;
- Learn more about the policy issues facing our industry;
- Speak with key leaders in Congress and the Administration in support of our common priorities; and
- Share your company’s concerns and personal experiences.
We need YOUR voice on Capitol Hill! Successful industry leaders like you are some of our best advocates.
If you are new to policy advocacy or this is your first time attending IMPACT, the IPC Government Relations team will be there to support you every step of the way.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact KenSchramko@ipc.org or 202-661-8094

President Trump kicked off the workforce challenge to U.S. businesses in July. As a longtime leader in education and training within the electronics industry, IPC took it as an opportunity to review our existing programs and identify ways to grow and innovate. The result? IPC joined the Pledge to America’s Workers by promising to create new career opportunities for at least 1 million Americans in the electronics industry.
