Dave and Rich recently had the opportunity to attend The Advocacy Group’s (“TAG”) annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. The TAG meeting had a record turnout which provided a great opportunity for members to exchange ideas on best practices. The meeting featured industry expert panels covering a wide spectrum of federal, state and local regulatory and political matters. Mr. Collins, who has served as president and as a director for the group, was elected Chair for 2020. TAG is the premier municipal, state, federal and international government and public affairs organization in the world. TAG’s network consists of the elite lobbyists, communicators and public affairs professionals in the 50 states, the U.S. Congress, and several countries around the globe. TAG firms have been solving public policy challenges for businesses, trade associations and not-for-profits since the group was founded in 1992. TAG members develop tailored strategies and solutions for clients and then skillfully shepherd them through the often daunting political, legislative and regulatory arenas where public policy becomes law.
