PRINTING United Alliance, the most comprehensive member-based association in the United States dedicated to printing and graphic arts, proudly announces its partnership with ACG Advocacy to enhance its presence on Capitol Hill and strengthen its lobbying efforts.
Members of the Alliance and the wider industry can expect continued robust advocacy and support through various channels to promote printing as a key focus area.
ACG Advocacy, a bipartisan firm, boasts a team with former high-ranking staffers experienced in shaping legislative and policy initiatives within both the Congressional and Executive branches. Representing diverse interests in manufacturing, retail, and financial services, ACG Advocacy counts the Association for American Publishers, the Copyright Alliance, the National Association of Realtors, and NewsCorp among its clientele.
With ACG Advocacy, the Alliance aims to establish and maintain a strategic and active presence in Washington. Together, they have formulated a legislative agenda, outlined a communication plan to keep members informed of potential legislation affecting the printing industry, and devised strategies to enhance relationships with congressional representatives and federal agencies. Additionally, ACG Advocacy will play a crucial role in the development and utilization of the Alliance’s PAC funding, PrintPAC.
Ford Bowers, CEO of PRINTING United Alliance, expresses confidence in the partnership: “After evaluating several lobbying firms, we were highly impressed with the caliber of ACG Advocacy’s staff and their influential connections in Washington. ACG Advocacy brings a wealth of subject matter expertise and extensive relationships with Congress and federal agencies. We eagerly anticipate expanding the Alliance’s reach for the benefit of the entire industry.”
While Lisbeth Lyons Black, the Alliance’s former VP of Government & Political Affairs, remains on staff, she has transitioned to a new role supporting the Women in Print Alliance. Leveraging her considerable experience, she will work to elevate women in the industry and enhance their visibility on a legislative level.
This collaboration underscores the Alliance’s commitment to advancing the printing and graphic arts sector through effective advocacy and strategic partnerships.
