What role do associations play in setting government policy?

There was a study discussed that showed data that besides customers having the largest economic value on a company in the next 3-5 years (71 percent), the government/regulators would have the second largest impact at 54 percent. Thus, it is the job of government affairs specialists to make sure the impact is positive and not harmful to small businesses and allows fair practices.

There is no one particular characteristic of a company or business that allows it to have success in legislative outcomes. Each characteristic is only has a coin flip chance (50 percent) of having the desired outcome. But, by combing more lobbyists, larger PAC money, etc., the chances of success increase.
