The membership of the Public Affairs Council is truly diverse, made up of nearly 700 organizations, including Fortune 500 corporations, emerging-growth companies, associations and consulting firms, all of which are at the forefront of the public affairs profession.

The Council’s firm-based membership structure allows a member’s entire public affairs staff to participate and benefit from membership. This means our member community includes about 8,000 professionals in the field, ranging from public policy analysts to senior vice presidents of international affairs. Council members are located across the U.S. and internationally, and more than half of our members work outside the Washington, D.C., area.
