Government Affairs Practice Committee

Who We Are

The mission of the Government Affairs Practice Committee is to provide informational resources and a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding substantive areas of policy, political law and the regulation of the profession for federal, state and provincial lobbyists and government affairs practitioners, both in-house and in private practice.

Message From The Chair

Welcome to the Government Affairs Practice Committee page. I look forward to working with all of you to develop timely and informative content and provide a forum for the exchange of thoughts and ideas. This committee welcomes all practitioners who deal with government affairs in their practice, whether it be as in-house counsel, a private practitioner or as a government employee. This committee is an excellent resource for government affairs practitioners, and I encourage all members to become active and involved. If anyone has any thoughts or ideas, please feel free to contact me at any time. My email is and my phone number is (518)434-4377.

Mark your calendars for the Annual Business Law Section Spring meeting. The Spring Meeting will take place from April 12-14, 2018 in Orlando, FL. More details to follow as the programming and schedule are finalized. Our committee will meet at this meeting. The agenda and call in information will be posted as the meeting gets closer. Please note that while the Business Law Section will have a Fall meeting in Washington, DC from November 16-18, 2017, our committee will not be participating in that meeting.

Stay tuned for information on the CLE programming the committee will be sponsoring at the Spring Meeting. Also, stay tuned for our next Committee newsletter and an online program that is being developed for early December.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the committee, our meetings or the programs.
