    Government Relations Committee Member

    The Government Relations Committee is a collective of highly engaged and influential volunteers who exemplify that, “We are activists.” Members identify, evaluate and prioritize public policy issues; conduct policy research; establish and nurture relationships with legislators and other policy officials; determine legislative strategies and tactics; and recruit, train and engage volunteers for MS activism. The GRC is distinct from other programs, such as self-help groups and has separate roles, goals and responsibilities.
