Your mission is Kellen’s mission. That’s why our team is so passionate in representing our partners’ priorities to their most important decision makers. Kellen works with industry groups as a true partner and advocate, turning organizational objectives and member concerns into action. Your advocacy program will benefit from a well-rounded suite of government and public affairs capabilities led by passionate experts ready to turn your mission into influence.
State & Federal Government Relations
When policy threatens your membership, a letter to your congressman just isn’t enough. Organizations that require face time with lawmakers rely on Kellen to ensure their perspectives are represented on Capitol Hill, and to deliver thorough and well-organized fly-in events in D.C. or state capitols to actively engage with legislators and align their missions with public policy.
Public Affairs & Engagement Communications
Kellen’s voice in D.C. is strong, but it’s made even louder by public engagement campaigns designed to activate relevant groups in support of our partners’ missions. From grassroots and online communications all the way to delivering congressional hearings, Kellen has a long track record of success in developing public affairs programs that drive and shape national discourse.
Every year, more than 5,000 new bills are introduced to federal legislators for consideration. Kellen offers clients an Information Resource Center which monitors emerging and introduced legislative bills, regulatory Advance Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRs), proposals and guidance documents on a daily basis so your organization can move quickly when a bill gains momentum.
Kellen’s government affairs team includes registered lobbyists who build and maintain ongoing relationships with legislative staffers at the federal and state levels to ensure our partner associations have opportunities to educate lawmakers regarding the impacts of legislation on their memberships and industries.
Policy Analysis & Communications
When policies change or new guidance is issued, your members will look to you for clear instructions to remain compliant. Our experts are well-versed in interpreting policy and translating it into communications programs that educate industry constituents and minimize the overhead required for them to keep in step with governing bodies.
