What is Public Affairs?

“Public affairs” describes the activities pursued by an organization to integrate stakeholders across government, business, media, and society.

Public affairs professionals seek to communicate an organization’s position and rationale to amend the application of regulation that can impact its ability to operate successfully. Through a combination of government relations, issue management,  and strategic communications, practitioners foster dialogue on public policy and facilitate the development of modern legislation.
