Founded in 2017 and based in Washington, D.C., GRA is the only organization in the world focused solely on supporting and championing the government relations profession. The Association is dedicated to (1) protecting the First Amendment of the Constitution that seeks to ensure the right of all parties to appeal to their U.S. Government for a “redress of grievances”; (2) promoting the social value, educating the public, supporting the professional development and encouraging the highest ethical standards of today’s practicing lobbyists and government relations professionals; and (3) connecting the world of government relations practitioners in order to foster dialogue, understanding and transparency so that free governments around the world can most effectively represent the constituents they have been elected to serve.
