IPC Ramps up PAC to Support Pro-Manufacturing Congressional Candidates

Dec 01, 2015

Opening a new phase in its efforts to educate policy makers on issues that affect the electronics manufacturing industry, IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, this week, launched a new website and recruitment campaign for the IPC Political Action Committee (IPC PAC).

In the United States, Political Action Committees (PACs) are transparent, regulated entities in which U.S. citizens and individuals lawfully admitted for permanent residence may join together to make political contributions to candidates.

The IPC PAC supports pro-manufacturing candidates based on their positions on key policy issues including: environment; science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education; R&D investment; regulatory reform; and tax. In the 2016 election cycle, the association plans to grow the IPC PAC so that it can support more candidates.

“To ensure that our industry remains strong and competitive, IPC is an advocate for policies that affect our industry,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO. “In addition to our advocacy efforts, IPC has a Political Action Committee. The IPC PAC amplifies our industry’s voice on Capitol Hill.”

IPC will work with member companies regarding the IPC PAC. Participation in the IPC PAC is purely voluntary. Getting involved or not with the IPC PAC, will have no impact on anyone’s professional status or relationship with IPC.
