Advocacy

Members rely on us to stay in-the-know and help them get involved at the State Capitol.  Not only do we work hard to defend the profession and Connecticut organizations against harmful legislation, we also connect members with legislators and regulators and pursue a number of legislative and regulatory initiatives each year.  Our advocacy efforts help build relationships so legislators respect and rely on us to offer feedback on new tax and economic proposals, ensuring they are crafted in the most effective way to achieve their intended goals. 

We keep you informed and advocate on your behalf.
