A key area of AN, Ltd. expertise is in the interaction between the political and business communities, and the application of strategic communications counseling and public affairs activities for maximum advantage and benefit to our clients.

  • Representation Strategy Support Regardless of your industry, it is a certainty that the government (and to some extent customer industries and other special interests) will continue to attempt to shape, regulate, limit and impose or shift tax burdens in all sectors of the US economy.

    Government decision-makers are ill equipped to engage the vital issues in an informed manner, so industry must protect its interests by participating in the legislative process. To do so successfully, it needs to develop a strategic issues agenda in preparation for every emerging issue, and to have a means to speak with a single, clear, coherent voice to the general public and their representatives.

  • Communications Another vital function of representative or advocacy organizations is "getting the word out" to members, regulators and other interested parties. Effectively providing information and "making your case" are pivital to successful, cost effective operations, and no-one can manage these functions better than AN, Ltd.
