Fairfax, VA – Today the National Institute for Lobbying & Ethics (NILE) announces its 2022 Top Lobbyists, Grassroots, & PAC Professionals. After a seven-week nomination process that saw overwhelming submissions, 100 individuals were chosen from across the nation. Our 2022 designees represent associations, non-profits, small firms, large firms, and corporations. Everyone chosen showed significant 2022 success, took an innovative approach to their field, and demonstrated commitment to giving back to their community, as well as adherence to the highest ethical standards. Nominations are evaluated blindly by fellow lobbyists to ensure receiving the honor of Top Lobbyist is 100% merit-based.
Each year NILE sets out to create an annual Top Lobbyist list to recognize and spotlight the amazing work done by lobbyists, PAC managers/directors, and grassroots professionals across the U.S. This distinction aims to be representative of the profession, not based on who you know and/or where you work. We take pride in the fact that the Top Lobbyist designation was created by lobbyists, for lobbyists. It is an opportunity for those in the profession to lift each other up and spotlight our important role in the political arena.
“This year’s list again highlights the phenomenal work of best-of-class professionals,” stated Jocelyn Hong, NILE President. “This recognition is special because lobbyists designed it, and lobbyists judged their peers. Our profession is sometimes misunderstood by the public and our contribution to government is often overlooked. This distinction highlights the positive side of the lobbying profession, people who are making an impact on public policy.” added Hong.
“The public doesn’t get to pull the curtain back and see the incredible work we do daily. Today we give them that opportunity by recognizing the Top 100 in the nation. This list of incredible professionals inspires me, and I believe their accomplishments will inspire many in our profession to raise the bar even higher,” stated Paul A. Miller, NILE Board Chairman.”
We wanted to showcase this year’s true industry leaders, and we believe the individuals below are reflective of just that!
Congratulations to all 2022 Top Lobbyists, Grassroots, & PAC Professionals!
