For better or for worse, what happens in our nation’s capital has a significant impact on your company’s bottom line and profitability. Think about how 100 percent bonus depreciation has benefited you and your customers. How would a long-term infrastructure plan impact your sales? Is trade uncertainty increasing your cost of doing business? Policy in Washington has a substantial effect on the industry and we need your involvement to ensure policy successes.
AED’s government affairs team does an excellent job representing your interests in Washington, but lawmakers also need to hear directly from business leaders like you about how their decisions on Capitol Hill affect our companies and employees.
We need your help to reach all those new representatives and tell our industry’s story. No one can convey that better than you. How are you and your customers affected by the uncertainty surrounding the federal infrastructure program? Have you and your employees benefited from lower tax rates and 100 percent full expensing of new and used equipment? Is the lack of technicians hindering your ability to service customers and forcing you to forgo business opportunities?
Beyond affecting policy, attending the AED Washington Fly-In gives you important political intelligence to help your business planning and excellent opportunities to network with other equipment industry leaders from across the country.
Don’t be intimidated. AED will get you up to speed on everything you need to know, including the top issues impacting the industry, how to effectively advocate for your company and what to say in your meetings with congressional offices. We’ll even schedule your Capitol Hill meetings for you so you can meet directly with your representatives and their senior staff. You’ll be exposed to the most powerful lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
