European Advisory Group

As the Public Affairs Council increases its presence in Europe, it has solicited feedback and guidance from public affairs executives with expertise in the European market, as well as professionals with responsibility for the function globally. The European Advisory Group serves in a consultative capacity to share their perspective on the needs of the public affairs community, help guide the Council as it grows in this market and provide expertise on programming and best practices for working with European institutions including governmental bodies, media, community leaders and NGOs.
