PLASTICS' government affairs team

  • Date: March 26 - 27, 2019
  • Held At: St. Regis Washington, DC, Washington, District Of Columbia

Don‘t let naysayers dictate the story of plastics. We know the widespread, positive impact plastics make. Now, more than ever, we need to show up in Washington, D.C., strong and proud, to educate those on Capitol Hill about what we already know: plastics help change peoples' lives for the better. 

It is critical for our industry to come together and show our strength in plastics and in making a Better Industry. Better World. New this year, the Plastics Industry Fly-In is coupled with the PLASTICS Spring Board Meeting, which includes Council Meetings, the FLiP Committee meeting, an inspirational keynote, evening entertainment and the opportunity for the entire plastics supply chain to come together. Details and a draft agenda will be coming soon.

Featured Issues: 

  • Introduce plastics to new lawmakers
  • Recycling infrastructure
  • Open competition for plastic pipe
  • Tariffs and trade
  • Workforce development

Partnering Organizations: Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), American Chemistry Council (ACC), American Mold Builders Association (AMBA), Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP), and Plastic Pipe Institute (PPI)


We will prepare you and set you up for success in your meetings on Capitol Hill. So what are you waiting for? This is your opportunity to tell your story in D.C.

During your face-to-face meetings with lawmakers and key decision makers, you can tell your real-world stories to illustrate how legislative issues will impact the health and viability of your business, your employees and your customers. There is no better way to cut through the political noise.

The Plastics Industry Fly-In will be using the VoterVoice mobile app to manage your meeting schedule with your representatives on Capitol Hill the day of the Fly-In. Download the VoterVoice mobile app to view your schedule and keep up to date with any changes that may occur. This will be the only means of seeing your schedule the day of the event. Additionally, the mobile app will have the following capabilities to continue your PLASTICS advocacy beyond your time here in DC.
