After countless hours on Zoom, networking events, frozen faces, and virtual conferences, the government affairs and advocacy worlds, like everyone else, are planning for a return to the office and continuing the hard work of educating, engaging, and influencing lawmakers.
The questions on everyone’s minds though are the same: what will ‘normal’ even look like? Do we even want to go back to daily commutes and frequent travel to statehouses and the Hill?
Join FiscalNote and CQ Roll Call as a panel of industry experts walk through what government relations, advocacy leaders, and public affairs professionals can expect as new operating procedures are rolled out across Capitol Hill, statehouses, and local government.
Discussion topics will include:
- When, or if, lobbying will ever return to pre-pandemic practices
- What live events could look like in the near future
- How a hybrid government relations shop might operate
- The likelihood of shaking hands or even being in the same room as your senator or representative.
