Government Relations in Associations

After a decade of working with government relations expert in the associations sector we’ve found the following truths to hold:

Associations have very small GR teams

The GR expert either reports directly to the CEO, or is the CEO!

Needs to work with a large number of stakeholders

No time to monitor mission-critical activities like updates from the Government

Additionally, our association GR expert has to be the smartest person in the room, and with mastery of the following superpowers:

 Ensuring compliance with regulatory policies, which may be changing!
Government Funding
Being aware of Government funding, which is critical for many non-profits
Regulatory and policy update
Ability to educate members, or stakeholders, on regulatory and policy updates via regular reports and newsletters
Government Media

Good at identifying key influencers in the Government, the media

Update Policies
Always on top of developing issues and chatter on policy changes
Global Mindshare
Master of benchmarking perceptions and mindshare over time
Bill Tracking
Effectively tracking bills, committee meetings and key witnesses
