IPC's Government Relations team has worked around the clock to ensure that IMPACT Washington D.C. 2017 is the best yet. The venues are set and meetings are secured, the only thing missing is you.
Each year, policymakers mention that they want and need to hear from constituents like you whose businesses are affected by their decisions.
During this two-and-a-half day event, executives from IPC-member companies will have the opportunity to speak with leaders in Congress and the Administration in support of our common priorities.
By registering today, you will have the chance to participate in:
- An executive luncheon with special guest EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt
- IPC’s Government IMPACT dinner honoring Reps. John Shimkus and Kurt Schrader
- Congressional meetings with policymakers from your hometown.
If you have any questions, please contact me at JohnHasselmann@IPC.org.
We look forward to seeing you in DC on May 1-3!

The material toolbox idea first came up when I saw the IPC appendix list for standard 1-ply stack-ups. The idea is to make a very simple bill of materials, specifications and notes, and possibly use the same prepreg/resin in the laminate and in the core.
One of the best parts of IMPACT for me is meeting and getting to know people in our industry that I haven’t met before. While hors d’oeuvres were coming around before the Tuesday evening awards dinner, I found a quiet corner to talk with Uyemura USA President and CEO Tony Revier.

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. 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.
