Event: Transformation of Public Affairs Workshop

Join FiscalNote, GPN, and the ABA for the Transformation of Public Affairs. The event will be comprised of two panels; attendees are invited to join us for one or both panels, as interests and schedules allow. Lunch will be provided.

Panel 1 | The Public Affairs Outlook for 2020
11:00 AM–12:00 PM

Gridlock has led to little movement on any issue in Congress, but healthcare, marijuana, and privacy laws all have a chance of getting over the line this year.

Our industry experts will offer insights into what legislation has a chance of passing in 2020, and what is likely to stall.

Our panelists include:

  • James Ballentine, Executive VP of Congressional Relations & Political Affairs, American Bankers Association
  • Tom DiLenge, President of Advocacy – Law – Public Policy, Biotechnology Innovation Organization
  • Michelle Rutter, Government Affairs Manager, National Cannabis Industry Association
  • Jonathan Miller, Deputy Editor, CQ Magazine
  • Joanna McIntosh, Senior Vice President and Chief, Government Relations, NCTA – The Internet & Television Association

Networking Lunch
12:00–12:30 PM

Panel 2 | Best Practices: Transforming Your Government Relations Department
12:30–2:00 PM

Just mitigating risk is no longer enough for government relations departments. They’re now expected to spot opportunities to help their organizations grow. That means traditional methods to manage organization-wide issues are no longer sufficient.

Join our panel of expert practitioners to learn how you can harness technological advances to meet the demands of a modern government relations team, manage your stakeholders and issues, and prove your ROI.

This session will be full of real tactics and useful tips to modernize your public affairs team to meet the challenges of 2020 and beyond.

Our panelists include:

  • Chelsea Raab, Senior Director of Enterprise Solutions, FiscalNote
  • Josh Habursky, Head of Federal Affairs, Premium Cigar Association
  • Greg Crist, Chief Advocacy Officer and Head of External Affairs, AdvaMed
  • Tori Emerson Barnes, Executive Vice President, Public Affairs and Policy, U.S. Travel Association
