Mike Stanton, CEO & president Global Automakers, at the December 20 meeting on the recent elections’ impact on the auto industry

The process seemingly took forever (as it always does), with non-stop rhetoric and vitriol filling the air, but the elections are now behind us and it is time to figure out what it all means going forward. Thursday (December 20) Mike Stanton, CEO and president of Global Automakers, will address how the results might impact the automotive industry at the final IMPA meeting of 2012.

The program commences with a noon reception followed by lunch, Stanton’s presentation and a question-and-answer session, all at the 3 West Club, 3 West 51st Street, New York. Tickets are $35 for members, $45 for others.

As a Washington insider and trusted voice for the auto industry, Stanton will discuss the outcome of the U.S. elections and the impact on public policy issues, including the new fuel economy/greenhouse gas emission regulations.

Stanton is a recognized expert on all things automotive, having represented motor vehicle manufacturers before Congress, the Executive Branch, and state legislatures for over 30 years. In 2008, Stanton was selected as a “Government Affairs All-Star” by Automotive News. Mike received The Hill’s top-lobbyist award in 2010, 2011, and again in 2012. An article in The Hill explains: “the unassuming Stanton is regarded as one of the industry’s most effective advocates, he is extremely well known on the Hill… a walking encyclopedia on a host of industry issues.”
