The data is clear: policy action is greater at the state level than at the federal- and every state has its own way of operating. Despite this, many state government relations teams face limited staff and limited budget. The State Government Relations Network is designed to help members in this space maximize your impact by creating a space for sharing ideas and challenges, getting solutions and practices, and building a network of peers who love state government relations as much as you do!
