IPC Sets Up Political Action Committee to Promote Member Goals

Political action committees (PACs) have become an important tool for any group that wants to be heard when laws and regulations are written. Given the growing number of government regulations that influence the electronics supply chain, having clout in Washington, D.C. is something that can no longer be ignored. As a result, IPC’s Board of Directors has decided to join the many trade associations and large companies that have established PACs.

IPC is in the process of filing papers with the Federal Election Commission to establish the IPC PAC. This committee will support federal candidates for office that advocate for policies that support the growth of electronics manufacturing.

Until the rules of political engagement change, we need to be part of the process and make our voice heard. The PAC will help raise IPC’s visibility with policy makers and other key influencers in Washington. As IPC continues to raise its profile, key members of Congress and administration officials, many of whom had never heard of IPC, are learning about the needs of our industry and the work IPC is doing. We need to continue to engage at a political and policy level and educate them on issues important to the success of our members.
