C-level executives from top electronics companies across the United States – all members of IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® – will gather in Washington, D.C. on May 21-23 for discussions with members of Congress and the Administration on issues that are critical to the future of the electronics industry and U.S. economy. IMPACT Washington, D.C. 2018 is IPC’s premier advocacy event, presenting members with the opportunity to conduct high-level meetings with their elected officials.

During the two-day event, the group will meet with congressional leaders and senior officials from the Departments of Defense, Commerce, Education and Treasury. Former Congressman Tom Davis and former CBO Director Doug Holtz-Eakin will deliver political and economic analyses.

This year, IPC will present its “Government IMPACT Award” to Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Todd Young (R-IN) for their leadership in supporting a robust domestic electronics industrial base. Senator Donnelly serves on the Armed Services, Agriculture, and Aging committees, and represents the Defense Department’s Executive Agent for Printed Circuit and Interconnect Technology at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana. Senator Young serves on the committees for Small Business and Entrepreneurship, Foreign Relations, Labor and Pensions, and most recently, the House Ways and Means Committee.
