Government Relations

Government relations is a vital function of the MBA.  An open dialogue with political leaders and regulators is one of the most important services that any trade association can provide to its members. Some of the government affairs services we provide to members include lobbying, regulatory monitoring, seminars on regulatory changes, and the annual Washington visit. For more information about MBA government relations, contact the MBA at 601-948-6366.
