Roundtable - BEST PRACTICES FOR BUILDING / MAINTAINING YOUR LOBBY PRACTICE

Ever have one of those days when you are sure there is a better way to do what we do?! Well, there might be! Our August Roundtable will explore best practices for the lobby profession, including the more technical business aspects (practice formation, accounting, tax changes, etc.), as well as more client specific issues such as how to set up engagement agreements, what expenses are appropriate to charge back to a client, how to manage conflicts of interest, and more.

If you are an association or company representative who has lobbyists you may learn something about how to better work with them as well! 

Presenters: 

  • Representatives from Atchley & Associates, CPA
  • Lobbyists and Ethics Attorneys: Tom Forbes, Jack Gullahorn, Gardner Pate and Ross Fischer

Roundtable with House Chief Clerk Robert Haney 

Discussion with House Chief Clerk Robert Haney. Haney discussed the House's proposed new kiosk based system that hopes to streamline the bill and resolution authorship process. The new process would eliminate the need for the coauthor and joint author forms that get circulated by members and staff…and sometime lobbyists (informally of course). Haney also discussed his thoughts on other changes in the pipeline heading into the 86th Legislative Session.  MCLE OFFERED. View slide deck
