The Knowledge You Need to Stand Out

The Public Affairs Council sponsors the profession’s most comprehensive and highest-rated executive education programs. We offer more than 100 annual events —  from large conferences to workshops and “virtual learning” seminars — covering everything from government relations and PACs to grassroots advocacy and digital communications, and much more.
