No matter what the type of organization, playing an active role in the political decision-making process and policy formation is no longer a luxury—it is an imperative.
In this episode of our Government Relations Podcast Series, Policy Directors Elizabeth Gore and Elizabeth Maier bring their broad knowledge of congressional issues from both sides of the aisle together for a discussion on what’s ahead after President Trump’s first 100 days in office. Brownstein Strategic Advisor Sen.
