Government Relations Committee


The Government Relations Committee discusses federal and state legislative and regulatory proposals on a wide range of issues currently affecting advertisers and marketers. Committee members receive the latest developments on legislation impacting the industry and provide important input and direction for ANA’s advocacy efforts in Congress and statehouses throughout the country. The Government Relations Committee helps program the ANA Government Relations 1-Day Conference and Capitol Hill Day, where members engage with Senators and Members of Congress. Membership in the Government Relations Committee is open to all ANA members, as is access to ANA’s state legislative monitoring service that provides customizable access to bills affecting advertising and marketing in all 50 states.

Committee Chair:  TBD

ANA staff managing the Government Relations Committee are Chris Oswald, Meghan Salome, and David Buzby.


Discussion Topics

  • Privacy and data security issues on the federal and state levels
  • Advertising taxes (both across-the-board and product-specific) on the federal and state levels
  • Attempts to ban or restrict advertising and marketing practices through legislation or regulation
