Public Policy Advocate

In a democratic, market-driven economy, government can either help or hurt the expansion of business enterprises. One role of associations is to make certain that government encourages business growth. A premiere organization should build a comprehensive program of work aimed at identifying, analyzing, and improving laws and regulations that impact its business members.

Business people and politicians around the world are finding that honest business practices are the best for all concerned. Advocating fairer laws or helping repeal poor regulations are proper and laudable activities for associations. Government and business should work together as partners to improve the living conditions of all people by creating new and better jobs for a nation’s economy.
