HCPA is pleased to announce the addition of Allyson Azar as the new Manager of State Government Relations and Public Policy for the West region.
Azar comes to HCPA from the American Chemistry Council, where she was responsible for managing advocacy activities, stakeholder activities and political mobilization efforts for states in the Mid-Atlantic region, and monitoring legislation across all 50 states. Azar also oversaw the State American Alliance for Innovation, a coalition of nearly 200 trade associations.
“HCPA continues to expand and strengthen our advocacy footprint at all levels of government,” said Steve Caldeira, HCPA President & CEO. “With the sustained polarization and limited action in Congress, activity at the state level has been steadily rising. Allyson will be a tremendous asset as we continue to proactively advance HCPA’s state legislative and regulatory agenda in a very complex and increasingly uncertain political landscape.”
“I look forward to working with the dedicated and experienced team at HCPA to ensure that our organization remains best-in-class for state-level advocacy and a forward-looking leader for the household and commercial products industry,” said Azar.
Azar holds a B.A. in Political Science and International Relations from Marquette University.
