Print & Packaging Legislative Conference (formerly known as Print’s Voice) is Printing Industries of America’s signature government affairs event that brings printers, suppliers and allied interests together for a powerful program of public policy and political education, issue advocacy, interaction with Members of Congress and networking events on Capitol Hill. Recommended attendees are Presidents/CEOs and other C-Suite executives of printing and graphic communications companies. Executives with responsibility for environmental/health and safety, human resources, legal, postal, tax, technology and/or sales are especially encouraged to attend.
Print & Packaging Legislative Conference is co-hosted by PIA, Association of International Corrugated Converters (AICC) and Fibre Box Association (FBA) and is held in conjunction with National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) annual Manufacturing Summit. Attendees will attend both industry sessions hosted along with events attended a cross section of manufacturers.
The highlight of the legislative summit is the in-person grassroots lobbying meetings on Capitol Hill that allow you to take your company and industry story directly to decision-makers in the US Senate and US House of Representatives. Given the dynamics of a new White House Administration and a new 115th Congress, you won’t want to miss this year’s fly-in!
