Dave recently had the opportunity to attend The Advocacy Group’s (“TAG”) annual meeting in Napa Valley, California. The TAG meeting featured industry expert panels covering a wide spectrum of public policy issues. The meeting was an opportunity for professionals to hear from leading industries and to exchange ideas on best practices. Mr. Collins, who has served as a director and officer of the group for several years, was elected president for 2019. 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.
