Effective Government Relations Strategy (our approach)

Defining an issue of public debate on your own terms is the key to moving public policy. When appropriate we utilize constituents and other influencers that become the amplifiers for your message and the vehicle for affecting policy, legislation, and broader public opinion on key issues. This style of advocacy, known as ‘foundational lobbying,’ builds a point of view rather than promoting a product or service. It requires a different approach to both development and integration with other strategic messaging.  It is a process that we follow to provide legislators the needed information to make informed decisions.
