Grassroots Advocacy: Get Involved!

With policy and legislation changes happening system-wide, member participation is even more essential. The ability of HIDA’s membership to educate and inform key decision-makers has a direct impact on the medical products supply chain and the provider customers we serve. Regardless of company size or type, distributors play a critical role in the success of HIDA’s advocacy efforts.

  • HIDA’s Legislative Action Center: Distributors have the opportunity to share their opinions directly with policymakers and help shape legislation using HIDA’s online legislative action center.
  • Member Of Congress (MOC) Site Visits: HIDA Government Affairs is eager to help you coordinate a Congressional site visit at your facility, and created a “Site Visit Toolkit” to get you started.

  • HIDA’s Political Action Committee (HIDA PAC): HIDA PAC is the only political action committee that exclusively represents medical products distributors on Capitol Hill. HIDA PAC relies 100% on the involvement of distributor members of HIDA communicating with Congress on issues poised to impact their businesses. The HIDA PAC allows distributors to support reelection campaigns of industry champions who recognize the critical role of the medical products supply chain.
