The NPES Government Affairs Program represents the interests of industry members in the public policy arena by identifying legislative, regulatory and judicial issues of importance, and then developing and advocating policy positions and priorities that support the interests of the association membership and the graphic communications industry in general. The process is guided by the Government Affairs Committee in cooperation with the Government Affairs Director, and is overseen by the Association Board of Directors.
Government Affairs Activities
The Government Affairs Committee typically meets twice a year, late winter in Washington DC and in the fall in Chicago in conjunction with industry trade shows PRINT or GRAPH EXPO. The late winter Washington, DC meeting includes issue briefings and meetings with members of Congress, Executive Branch officials, and their staff.
In addition to committee meetings, from time to time the Government Affairs Program hosts events, webinars and conference calls on topics of importance.
All Government Affairs activities are open to all NPES members.
