Advocacy and trade organizations

Whenever we engage in public policy advocacy, whether in the U.S. or abroad, we seek to work constructively to articulate the company’s perspective. As appropriate, we work directly with policymakers, their staff, business associations, coalitions and others to make our views known and to influence policy that will facilitate growth and innovation.

To keep our employees apprised of policy issues and progress and their impact on TI, we periodically publish an e-newsletter called TI Government Relations News, and upload articles to Infolink, our internal news portal, where we have a dedicated area for government relations. We also share advocacy updates on our Citizenship home page.

As members of various trade organizations, we collaborate with customers, peers and other stakeholders to promote growth and competitiveness. We also engage with industry analysts and nongovernmental organizations about our operational and citizenship performance.

Additionally, we engage with industry groups such as the Semiconductor Industry Association and World Semiconductor Council. We meet with other technology companies to discuss business challenges and emerging regulations, forecast industry trends, and share best practices.
