“My company’s corporate giving strategy, still going gangbusters today, was first seeded at a Council board meeting. I parked myself next to a member, solicited input on my draft plan, accepted two astute points and finalized the proposal, now implemented and succeeding. Now that’s how I like to do business!”

“I rely on PAC and its top-notch staff to keep my Public Affairs team on top of developing issues. While we are busy with our daily challenges, PAC monitors trends and technology that help us meet those challenges. Webinars and workshops sharpen skills and add tools to the toolbox. For a graduate-level experience, the Public Affairs Institute stands alone as an immersive experience. It offers public affairs professionals a reminder of why we love this business.”
