Changing regulations, new laws, and entirely new federal initiatives can greatly affect the way a company does business. Larger companies that expect to deal closely with these changes often employ a director of government affairs. This person examines how new and changing government regulations will affect a business, as well as suggests and forecasts ways to manage these changes. Additionally, the director represents the company to the government, attempting to generate positive outcomes in legislation and the application of regulation.
