Most associations primarily focus advocacy efforts on state and federal legislators. State attorneys general, however, have been rapidly realizing their potential to impact public policy. As AGs expand their purview, it’s vital that associations build relationships with their AG(s) just as they would with legislators.
For any association whose members produce a product or service in the U.S., taking a proactive approach with AG(s) offers an opportunity to prove value to members. By building a relationship proactively, rather than reactively, associations can better communicate risks and mitigate the potential impact of inquiries or investigations for their members.
