Government Affairs in Action

More than 60 distribution leaders met in D.C. for our annual Washington Summit. These members participated in more than 100 meetings with members of Congress and key staffers–a 25% increase from the preceding year.


Sustaining Momentum

HIDA remains fully engaged with federal and legislative leaders to advance member interests. HIDA’s Political Action Committee (HIDA PAC) also supports lawmakers who listen to and advocate for healthcare supply chain stakeholders, raising more than $174,000 for these industry champions and achieving a 95% winning percentage in the 2016 November elections.

Advocating for Distributors

Staying engaged in HIDA’s advocacy efforts is the best way to increase distribution’s visibility on Capitol Hill, as well as identify new business opportunities for you and your customers. Mark your calendar for the next HIDA Washington Summit.
