The Government Relations Committee is responsible for staying abreast of local, state and national legislative issues that may affect the business of advertising at any level. It is charged with informing members about those issues and encouraging them to communicate with their local legislative delegation about pending legislation. The committee maintains a relationship with any locally elected officials who may represent the interests of members and their business interests in state and federal government. Committee meetings are on an as-needed basis and may be more frequent just prior to and during state legislative sessions.
Potential Government Relations Committee members should have an interest in politics, building relationships with our local legislature and expanding their understanding of legal issues in advertising.
