The State Government Affairs Council is the premier national association for multi-state government affairs professionals of U.S.

Mission: The State Government Affairs Council (SGAC) is the premier national association for multi-state government affairs professionals, providing opportunities for networking and professional development. SGAC's key strategies are to: • Conduct educational activities that benefit members of the Council, legislative and public policy organizations and their members; • Strengthen interaction and understanding between and among SGAC members and state government officials; and • Champion professional and ethical standards in government relations. SGAC as an organization does not take positions on matters of public policy, but through its members seeks to enhance policy-makers' knowledge of various business perspectives.
