The State Government Affairs Department plays an extensive, broad-based role on behalf of AFSA members by comprehensively addressing legislative and regulatory issues on the state level. In addition to direct advocacy, where appropriate, the department monitors virtually all relevant legislation and regulations for its members, updating them on state issues via ongoing legislative reporting, enacted law reports, constant e-mail communication, and calls on priority issues. SGA holds quarterly state association executive briefings and regular in-person meetings to address our members’ highest priorities.
