You can look to established players at the federal and state level for examples of strategy to replicate within your team. Here are three examples of organizations who integrate elements of effective government relations strategy in their daily workflows:

1. Building (and Sustaining) Close Relationships with Elected Officials Through Consistent Communication - Walmart

When Walmart implements a change that has an impact on a particular community—such as opening a new store or plant—it makes sure that the legislator who works in that district is made aware of Walmart’s activity. This allows Walmart to remain front-of-mind for legislators and builds relationships beyond just requesting particular action on legislation. [callout align="left" heading="See How Walmart Builds Relationships in Congress" button_text="Read the Case Study" button_link="https://www.quorum.us/case-studies/building-relationships-policy-stakeholders/"] Walmart takes its relationships with legislators a step further by frequently bringing them on site to Walmart facilities. This gives lawmakers a hands-on experience and understanding of the way that the company impacts the district.

2. Manage Engagement with Officials and Staff - Consumer Technology Association

Engaging with elected officials is a significant part of CTA’s work, from regular events at the CTA Innovation House on Capitol Hill to the annual CES show in Las Vegas—the largest trade show in the country. With all these events in addition to regular meetings and site visits with legislators and staff, it could be challenging to keep track of who on the CTA team has met with which legislative offices. With Quorum, CTA can log notes from each event or meeting and keep the team in the loop with where each relationship stands.

3. Tracking Mentions of Key Issues Across All 50 State Legislatures - Jackpocket

As a startup in the lottery industry, Jackpocket’s bottom line is dependent on regulatory changes happening across all 50 state legislatures. Jackpocket can’t risk missing a relevant mention of the lottery on any bill, press release, or social media post, so they use legislative tracking software to follow all of these things in one centralized place. While it is certainly important to know what legislators are discussing in official meetings and events, businesses that are impacted by state-level legislation need a government relations strategy that helps follow online conversations.
