ASA Advocacy Fights for USMCA

Washington, D.C. – July 23, 2019 The American Supply Association’s (ASA) Director of Government Relations, Catherine Treadwell Perry, participated in the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) Fly-In hosted by the National Association of Manufactures (NAM). Congressional passage of the USMCA is important to ASA members and the PHCP and PVF supply-chain because it will help manufacturers grow in the United States, compete globally, levels the playing field, and supports millions of well-paying manufacturing jobs across the country. If our member manufactures are strong, our distributors are strong.

The day consisted of roughly 130 industry representatives participating in 140 Congressional meetings. Catherine met with Rep. Mike Quigley (IL-D-05), Rep. Daniel Lipinksi (IL-D-03), Rep. Danny Davis (IL-D07), and Rep. Sean Casten (IL-D-06). The message was clear, Congress must pass the USMCA now.

Jim Kendzel, ASA VP Advocacy, noted “We are proud of the work Catherine is doing in representing our members in D.C. Through her active role in key Coalitions and working with our partners such as NAM, she is focused on reaching out and letting Congress know our concerns and issues and ultimately having a positive impact.”

ASA members and other industry stakeholder can help Catherine in being the voice of ASA by participating in ASA grassroots campaigns where owners and employees can send an email to their Senators and Representatives promoting ASA’s position.
