AIF Councils, Committees and Lobby Groups
AIF Councils, Committees, and Lobby Groups allow members to take a leadership role in the public policy issues that affect their companies. They put together members who have a common interest with the experts of our lobby team to discuss the main issues of the day. They give members an opportunity to discuss their concerns with top government officials, to provide input on the development of rules and regulations, to analyze key legislation, and to plan strategy for passing or defeating legislation. Member input and ideas are then used to help drive policy to the AIF Board of Directors and build AIF’s agenda for each legislative session.
Councils bring together unique sectors of the business community in order to develop and promote issues vital to those respective industries. Below are links to additional information on the Councils which are active at this time.
Policy Committees, Task Forces, and Coalitions are formed to address issues which are not specific to any one industry. They may be temporary, such as the Y2K Task Force that worked on the computer industry’s transition to the new millennium, or of a more permanent nature.

The Corporate Advocacy Group and the Association Advocacy Group are special committees comprised of governmental affairs representatives who, as their name implies, lobby exclusively for corporate employers or business associations. These Groups meet throughout the year to discuss business issues. Their focus is not limited to any particular industry or subject matter. They also help coordinate AIF’s activities on matters of general concern to the business community and work with members of AIF’s Lobby Team at the Capitol during the legislative session to accomplish mutual goals.
