ISEA provides its members a full-time “Washington office.” Our DC-area location gives the association the advantage of being on government’s doorstep, with direct access Congressional offices and federal regulatory agencies.
With policies and positions established by a Government Relations Committee, association staff is in constant touch with key policy makers whose decisions affect the entire industry. ISEA is also close to other prominent national organizations with whom we share common interests.
ISEA’s goal is to actively influence the outcomes and impact of government decisions or actions that affect safety equipment or safety equipment markets. Product-related issues get first priority, and staff members work directly with members, government and industry groups to ensure that safety equipment interests are well represented in the nation’s capital. When other issues arise that affect the industry, ISEA is able to respond with sophisticated lobbying and information services.
ISEA members are kept informed through the weekly Washington Update highlighting facts and analyses of major issues and initiatives. Additionally, they have access to sophisticated voter information and education material for their employees through the association’s Prosperity Project. Members have a direct pipeline to government officials whose decisions affect their companies and the industry, and they are kept up to date on important developments affecting their companies, and are identified with a respected and responsible professional organization.
