Coalition Building

Government affairs advocacy is most effective when an industry speaks with a united voice on an issue.  Finding consensus among diverse members of any industry on legislative or regulatory principles can prove elusive.  Wendelboe Consulting will reach out to industry associations and their advocates to build consensus and to insure commitments are kept when the agreed upon legislation goes before the legislature.  This is a vital resource whether dealing with a corporation's interest, special issue group, or an industry association.
Legislative Monitoring

Knowledge is Power!  Just want to have a handle on what legislation is being filed that "may" impact your industry but don't want a full service contract?  Wendelboe Consulting offers a nominal fee contract for monitoring proposed bills  and will notify you of pending issues that would affect your issue.  Then you can decide if you need to contract for more extensive services to respond to the legislative action.
Hearing Preparation

Delivering effective testimony before the legislature or agency is the single most important factor in securing legislative success.  The wrong body language, comparative example or answer to a question can mean the difference between success and failure.  Wendelboe Consulting can effectively deliver testimony on behalf of our clients or prepare the client to deliver testimony themselves, whichever is most effective.
Legislative Strategies

Having someone in state, on the ground, with intimate knowledge of the process and legislative players is critical in mapping out a strategy for success.   Gathering information on who to talk to, where to find them, when to meet them, and what to say, is time and labor intensive.  Knowing the political landscape, the legislative leaders in each policy area, and the best way to navigate your issue through the system is what Wendelboe Consulting can provide with great expertise.  Our relationships and network of contacts throughout  government enables Wendelboe Consulting to see both sides of the issue,,,from your viewpoint as well as the elected official's constituency.
