AGRP Lobbyist Association Closing Down
On April 18, the Association of Government Relations Professionals (AGRP) began winding down operations, according the organization’s press release. The group, formerly known as the American League of Lobbyists, had billed itself as the voice of lobbying, public policy, and advocacy professions. “After a long-running legal dispute over a 2008 contract, AGRP’s board believes it is no longer viable to continue operations,” the statement gave as the reason for the closing of the organization. No further details were provided.
