It takes a village to provide photo coverage of IAR’s Hill visits

The images we’re posting this week from the visits to Capitol Hill are part of a team effort.

After all, it’s simply impossible for some of us to be in three simultaneous meetings, so we need what the military calls a “force multiplier.” In other words, we recruit members and government affairs directors to help out and make sure we chronicle the forceful presence IAR is having this week in Washington, D.C.

On Wednesday, IAR Communications got images from all over the Hill as the visits happened. In fact, we got so many images (and good ones, too) that it took a few hours to get them all processed and uploaded.

So it’s appropriate to acknowledge and thank some of those who helped out. They include: Sharon Gorrell, Ann Londrigan, Jeff Merrinette, Matt Difanis, Brian Bernardoni, Conor Brown, Tom Joseph, Ron Abrams, Mike Drews and Howard Handler.

There will be more Hill visits today, and I am sure these folks (and others) will be helping out.
