“Having Dan Hilton as ASA’s full-time staff
presence in Washington, D.C.,
will give the association the opportunity to become more integrated in the
daily activities on the Hill,” said ASA Government Affairs Committee chairman
Dennis Goode (M. Cooper Supply, Mokena,
Illinois). “ASA will now be
consistently active in coalition meetings that take place almost on a weekly
basis, and can be more proactive in our advocacy activities.”
Hilton is responsible for providing strategic
direction and management of all federal and state legislative, regulatory,
public affairs and political activities for the association, establishing key
contacts and maintaining diverse relationships with major policy makers, while
simultaneously engaging the industry in the legislative and political process.
“The authorization of a full-time staff
position in Washington, D.C., by the ASA Executive Committee is both bold and
visionary, and exhibits ASA’s commitment to the interests and success of its
members,” said ASA executive vice president Michael Adelizzi. “By placing
increased resources and leadership needed to become part of the solution in Washington, we are
better positioned to react to legislation and regulations that may have a
negative impact on our members’ businesses.
Additionally, ASA is now in a
better position to be proactive in promoting positive legislation that will
increase business opportunities for our members and the overall visibility of
the industry. Issues will escalate in the foreseeable future and will place a
great burden on individual company budgets in trying to deal with them, as well
as the association’s budget in trying to fight for industry interests. Having
full-time staff in place to manage all of these efforts will benefit everyone.”
Hilton has more than 10 years of experience
working for two members of Congress and for the House Armed Services Committee.
