Our ServicesGovernment Relations can be a highly effective “value add” for membership organizations. Congress often delegates authority to federal agencies to determine key implantation details for new policies and programs. Making it critical for organizations to understand how these details may impact them.
We understand the pace and pulse of Congress. We know what’s moving through the legislative process and why. Our knowledge and understanding of the legislative process can help ensure that your issue gets linked to the right bill, at the right time.
We support our client’s advocacy efforts by offering:
Who is the right Member to sponsor our legislation and who you should avoid? What is the best approach for educating Members on the issue? We work with our clients to answer important questions like these to develop the right legislative strategy for them.
We establish and maintain working relationships with key Congressional offices and Committee staff so that our clients can stay ahead of important legislation that can impact their business decisions. Knowing which Congressional offices to communicate with as well as the most effective way to communicate with each office is necessary to make sure an organization’s voice will be heard.
We understand that our clients need to be properly positioned to have their voice heard in the regulatory process. We know how to navigate the bureaucracy of each Federal Agency to pinpoint where our clients’ voice will be most effective and can best serve as a resource to the Agency, and carefully monitor the actions of Federal Agencies to identify where there are areas of interest for our clients as well as for opportunities to participate in the regulatory process.
We support our clients in the Regulatory Process through:
- Submitting formal comments on proposed rules and regulations;
- Identifying vacancies on Federal advisory boards and helping our clients throughout the nomination process;
- Monitor Notices and Guidance documents that affect the business operations of our clients and their members;
- Analyzing the complexities of a rule or regulation on how it directly and indirectly affects our clients.
