    Enjoy sipping on red and white while supporting the red, white and blue! Attendance at this event will help raise funds for the association's Political Action Committee. While you're enjoying your networking and wine, be sure to place your bids for the silent auction. IAPD members donate fabulous auction prizes, ranging from cool tech to gift cards and everything in between.

    Our priorities cannot be accomplished without legislators who understand and hear from the performance plastics industry. What happens in Washington, D.C. affects our companies’ bottom lines. 

    The fee to attend is US$100 and will be billed on site at this reception.

    This fee is considered a "contribution" to the IAPD Plastics PAC. Federal law requires that all contributions must be made to the IAPD Plastics PAC by personal check or credit card. Corporate contributions are strictly prohibited.

    ONLY U.S. Citizens are permitted to personally contribute to the IAPD Plastics PAC. Non-U.S. citizens will be charged US$50 to cover reception costs, but may not contribute a personal donation to the PAC and may not participate in the silent auction.
