Government Relations and Public Policy Committee

The Government Relations and Public Policy Committee develops recommendations for public policy positions affecting MCF’s legislative, regulatory, and administrative advocacy. The committee adopts an annual advocacy agenda reflecting MCF’s public priorities, and provides consultation to support the development and implementation of public policy services and programs for MCF members. Selected members may serve on a task force to work on special committee initiatives. Members also participate in and encourage membership involvement in MCF’s government relations and public policy activities.
