Chris Sims with Sigao Studios
will join representatives from nearly 50 other app makers and connected device companies at ACT | The App Association’s annual App Economy Conference (AppCon) in Washington, D.C., April 28 – May 1, 2019.
In Washington, Chris will have the opportunity to engage policymakers on some of the most pressing issues facing Birmingham, Alabama’s tech community today. Those issues include broadband infrastructure, privacy, computer science education, and topics surrounding connected health technologies.
“Large companies often have armies of lawyers and lobbyists helping push their agenda in DC. Small to Mid-size companies like Sigao (and many of our clients) can't afford the type of representation we need to help push legislation critical to our success. That's where the app association comes in play. They provide a voice in DC to companies like Sigao.”
For the past 10 plus years, the App Association has brought small and medium-sized tech companies to Washington to engage with policymakers and regulators on the issues that affect them.
“Throughout the year, the staff at the App Association works tirelessly, advocating on behalf of our members on Capitol Hill, at various regulatory bodies, and before courts,” said Alexandra Cooke, director of membership at the App Association. “AppCon is an opportunity for our members to meet with Members of Congress and their staff to tell their stories and advocate for policies that will positively impact their businesses. Last year we made a big difference, with more attendees and meetings than ever before. Congress heard their voices on the key issues for our industry, and their expertise will be even more valuable this year as we prepare to educate a new Congress.”
