ACG leaders and members gathered recently in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the organization’s 60th anniversary and discuss issues of public policy affecting the middle market. Several government representatives spoke at the 3rd annual public policy summit, including Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), SEC’s David Blass, U.S. Department of Treasury’s Mary Miller, Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and Rep. John Delany (D-Md.). ACG’s influence on policy has been growing over the last few years.
