NETWORK WITH SAFETY INDUSTRY PEERS

George Washington’s Mount Vernon Mansion: Leadership Institute Session – Join us for a special evening at the Leadership Institute Session: Washington’s Integration of Strategy, Leadership and Management, and assess your leadership and civic engagement through the lens of the founding fathers, followed by an exclusive tour of the Mount Vernon mansion.

White House Briefing and Tour – Join your ISEA Policy team and your safety equipment industry peers in a meeting with the White House Office of Public Liaison.

HEAR FROM OUR LIST OF EXPERTS SPEAKERS

Amy Walter, Political Analyst, National Editor of The Cook Political Report, Past Political Director of ABC News – Recent feedback from our members confirms the safety equipment industry enjoyed a year of expansion in 2017, which is carrying over into 2018. To help our members understand the business implications of Washington policy and the economy, we have engaged Amy Walter from the Cook Political Report, known for her fact and data-driven insights and analysis of current affairs inside Washington DC.

Jimmy Christianson, Vice President of Government Relations for the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America – Next up, we will explore the $1.6 trillion infrastructure proposal released by the White House. To discuss, ISEA has reached out to Jimmy Christianson, Vice President of Government Relations for AGC of America. He will also discuss challenges some AGC members face when complying with OSHA compliance during historic infrastructure expansions.

Nexus of Global Security and Trade Panel – 2017 was a year of uncertainty in regard to global security concerns and their possible impact on trade and the economy, specifically in the Pacific Rim. To unpack manufacturers concerns, we have organized a panel discussion with Linda Dempsey, Vice President, International Economic Affairs from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and Sam Visner Director of the National Cybersecurity Federally Funded Research and Development Center (NCF) from MITRE. NAM has taken the lead in representing manufacturers concerns about instability, and Sam is a veteran of DC’s intelligence community. We hope that ISEA members will come away with new information about the impact of global conflict on the economy and on trade.

Kenneth Kies, Managing Director of the Federal Policy Group, Former Chief of Staff of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation – 2017’s biggest legislative win for the Trump administration was tax reform. The impact of this reform on corporate tax will be the focus of this presentation by Kenneth Kies, Managing Director of the Federal Policy Group. Ken dig’s past the headlines to provide a more nuanced approach to the changes in tax code that are relevant to U.S. manufacturers.

“Economic Update” by Dr. Alison Premo Black, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist, American Road and Transportation Builders Association.

Town Hall Meeting – Join the leaders of ISEA in a point/counterpoint discussion with Howard Dean, former DNC Chairman, Governor, and Presidential candidate, and Steve Schmidt, political strategist and advisor to the 2008 Presidential campaign of Senator John McCain, about the current political climate, plans for their respective parties, and take your pressing questions.

 

In the past, our attendees have told us that they left the meeting inspired with informed opinions, realistic strategies, and new business relationships formed with their peers across the industry.
