ITA's DC Summit/ Capitol Hill Day

The Indoor Tanning Association would like to invite all salon owners, manufacturers and distributors to join the effort to repeal the tan tax! May 21 &22 is ITA's Industry Summit and Day on Capitol Hill! If you're tired of paying the tan tax then join us in Washington DC and tell your elected officials all about it.

Rep. Michael G. Grimm has agreed to reintroduce his bill to repeal the tax and has called on our industry to help him gain co-sponsors.

This two day event will begin on May 21st with an open board meeting and planning session for the next day’s Capitol Hill meetings. Everyone will be given a personal meeting schedule, key talking points and a fact sheet to help them make a personal connection with their elected officials while asking for support in repealing the tan tax.

Tuesday night we are planning a fundraising event hosted by our Political Action Committee. Wednesday morning, we will gather on Capitol Hill. The schedule will allow everyone to leave by mid afternoon.

We encourage all tanning industry professionals to attend this year’s summit. There are between 80 and 90 new members of the House and Senate and this is an excellent way to introduce our industry.

If you are interested in getting involved please contact the ITA at admin@theita.com for more information.

I went to the last one and it was a very impressive two days. I had quality face time with many of my elected officials from CT.

Member Update – DC Summit/ Capitol Hill Fly-In
This is a reminder that ITA's DC Summit/ Capitol Hill Fly-In is scheduled for May 21-22. If you have not made plans to attend, it is not too late.
The proposed order published by the FDA on May 6 to reclassify sunbeds and sunlamps to class II is foremost on our agenda now. The board meeting May 21 and Capitol Hill Day on May 22 are excellent opportunities for you to get involved with our efforts to combat this order.
We will meet on Tuesday afternoon to discuss our strategy to deal with the FDA. This meeting will provide you will the knowledge to talk to your elected representatives and their staffs about the many misconceptions about indoor tanning and be an advocate for reason at the FDA.
This is an important meeting for the future of our industry and if you can make to Washington, let us know right away. Call 202 367 1142 or email admin@theita.com for more information or if you can join us.
