As part of its Plumbing and PVF Spring Meeting in Washington, D.C., in mid-April, members of the AD buying group, in partnership with the American Supply Association, met with their members of Congress about hot-button industry topics.

More than 220 attendees representing nearly 115 member companies participated in more than 170 meetings on Capitol Hill. It was the biggest ASA-associated Capitol Hill visit since NETWORK2013 in Washington, D.C.

Members of Congress heard from AD member companies about issues such as e-fairness, water infrastructure and overtime regulations. In addition to the many meetings on Capitol Hill, a group of AD members and ASA executive staff members met with White House staff about the looming overtime regulations making their way through the process.
