While CDA has been engaged in Federal and State advocacy for decades, in 2020 CDA formally created a new Government Affairs Committee (GAC). The GAC is made up of individuals representing CDA members and seeks to educate our members on issues of importance to the copper industry and partner with them to advocate for our priorities. The GAC is a forum for CDA members to provide feedback into the priorities established by CDA product councils and the Health, Environment, Sustainability & Safety (HESS) Committee and to identify additional issues of concern.
Meeting quarterly, members of the GAC are all wiling to actively participate in advocacy themselves. For more information on the CDA Government Affairs Committee please contact CDA Director of Government Relations, John Hilbert.
