Governmental Relations is responsible for establishing, maintaining, and enhancing new relationships with federal, state, and local officials and staff in executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Such relationships are crucial to the maintenance of our funding and support levels, as well as new and expanded requests for resources, cooperation, and collaboration. We meet regularly with key individuals to advocate and educate.
In particular, Governmental Relations monitors approximately 4,000 pieces of state legislation that are introduced each session and ensures compliance with a myriad of regulations and reporting and filing requests, and responds to numerous governmental requests.
