In 2021, government relations and advocacy are the top priorities for many associations nationwide. At the same time, several previous and ongoing political controversies have created an ever-challenging environment for association leaders and government relations and advocacy professionals alike. In this shifting landscape, how can associations and those who represent them carry out their advocacy work ethically, transparently, and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations?

To answer this question and others, please join the ASAE Government Relations and Advocacy Professionals Advisory Council and the National Institute for Lobbying & Ethics on Thursday, March 11, 2020 from 12:00-1:00 PM EST for a timely discussion on ethics for association government relations and advocacy professionals. During this session, an esteemed panel of ethics experts, association leaders, and advocacy professionals will discuss the latest front-page developments, explore real-life case studies, review the ‘rules of the road’ for government relations and advocacy professionals, and lead a discussion of best practices for avoiding ethical challenges in association government relations and advocacy.

Live attendees will receive 1 CAE credit that can be used to fulfill the CAE ethics requirement.
