Navigating Relationships with Government- Influence, Communication, & Trust

We’re all trying to do the important work of regulation while faced with a changing and sometimes (most times) charged political landscape.  How can professional regulators successfully lead and navigate their relationship with governments?  Join us for a moderated panel discussion to explore questions such as these:

  • What strategies can regulatory organizations use to navigate government relations?
  • How can regulators communicate effectively with government?  What type of messaging should regulators be sharing with government officials, and what are some tips and tricks for communicating that message?
  • In the media and from government, regulators are often portrayed as “barriers” – barriers to people’s right to earn a living, barriers to economic growth, barriers to mobility of professionals.  How can regulators respond to the idea that “regulators are barriers”?
  • How does trust come into play in regulator-government relationships, and what implications or effect can that have?
