Corporate Government Affairs Roundtable: What to Expect in 2021

With a new president, a new Congress and a new agenda taking hold in Washington, corporate public affairs and government relations professionals have a lot to digest. Join us at the Phone2Action Corporate Summit to hear how your colleagues are preparing and to share your own insight.
In a series of sessions, as well as a cross-industry roundtable, we will explore the evolving political climate; changes in the legislative landscape; innovations in technology (including input from experts at GovPredict and KnowWho); and the future of corporate advocacy, government relations and public affairs in 2021. We’ll finish with a networking event, where you can discuss issues and approaches directly with colleagues. Attendance at the Phone2Action Corporate Summit is limited. Please RSVP to reserve your seat.
