IDFA names new Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs

June 18, 2014

The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), Washington, D.C., has named David J. Carlin to the position of senior vice president of legislative affairs. In this role, Carlin will be responsible for managing all of the association's legislative, political and economic policy activities. He replaces Jerry Slominski, who left IDFA earlier this year.

David J Carlin- IDFACarlin, who was a partner with Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP until joining IDFA, has extensive experience in food and agriculture policy. He has represented numerous food and agricultural companies, cooperatives and trade associations before the House and Senate Agriculture Committees and at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

"Dave knows agriculture policy well, having served as assistant secretary for Congressional Relations under Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman,” said Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO.

Carlin was an associate at Akin Gump when President Bill Clinton appointed him in 1995 to serve with Glickman at USDA. As head of the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Relations, Carlin served as the primary USDA liaison with Congress and the White House Office of Legislative Affairs. He returned to Akin Gump in 1998 to focus his practice on public law and policy matters.

In Washington, D.C., Carlin also is active in many community, civic and charitable organizations. He co-founded the Homeless Children’s Tutorial Project Inc., a volunteer program serving children in Washington, D.C. He also is chairman of the board of directors for Video/Action, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization and serves as a member of the board of trustees of the Capitol Hill Day School along with Tipton.

Carlin received a B.A. summa cum laude in political science and modern languages from Kansas State University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School, where he served as co-chairman of the Harvard Law School Legislative Research Bureau. He is a member of the District of Columbia and Missouri bars.
