Professional Networks

Professional Networks


The Council offers a variety of networking groups for public affairs professionals with a common interest to connect with their peers. Participants in these members-only groups engage in informative discussions, hear from thought-provoking speakers and advise the Council on its programming.

We encourage members to take active leadership and participatory roles by:

  • Providing guidance for our educational and member service programs
  • Networking and sharing ideas with top public affairs professionals from other industry sectors
  • Exchanging strategic planning and program management resources
  • Joining network-related ad hoc advisory groups to address specific and timely topics

Association Network

The Public Affairs Council recognizes that associations face unique challenges and opportunities. The Association Network is a free network open exclusively to members of the Council who are employed by trade, business or professional associations. Network members can share ideas and challenges with peers, get solutions and best practices and build a network of association colleagues.

Corporate Social Responsibility Network

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming more embedded into the culture of a company. That is why we’re looking for CSR professionals like you to share your ideas and join today. This is a free members-only network open to CSR practitioners. Network members can connect with other professionals who face similar challenges, share industry trends and collaborate on best practices.

International Network

Want to keep company with some of the world’s most experienced international public affairs practitioners? Become part of the Council’s International Network (IN), where you will discover programs and services that guide public affairs professionals working at companies around the globe.

Political Involvement Network

The Political Involvement Network (PIN) is a forum for community building, but it offers much more than that. This service provides dynamic networking and idea-sharing opportunities where you can hear about the latest tools and tactics to make your program (and YOU) shine in this new political environment.

To join a network, email Casey Mensinger with your contact information and the name of the network(s) of interest to you.
