Government Relations Committee

The Government Relations Committee advises the IAA regarding legislative advocacy before the U.S. Congress, including both lobbying by the IAA and related grassroots advocacy by IAA members. The Committee also provides input regarding legislative issues analysis and prioritization. The Committee meets by teleconference on a bi-monthly basis, unless developments warrant more frequent meetings. Individuals from member firms who have an interest in playing an active role in the IAA’s legislative advocacy program are eligible for membership on the Committee.
