Government Affairs Council
The WBBA’s Government Affairs Council (GAC) is comprised of active WBBA member company representatives, at least two-thirds of whom represent core member companies. Membership on the GAC is by invitation.
The GAC oversees legislation and policy at the local, state and federal levels, and develops position papers, assesses the impact of policy on members, and takes appropriate action via letter, testimony and meetings. The GAC also develops and makes recommendations to the Executive Committee regarding the WBBA’s annual public affairs agenda and engages in fundraising for BIOPAC.The chair of the GAC is appointed by the WBBA Board chair and serves on both the WBBA Board of Directors and Executive Committee. Members of the GAC, along with the current board chair and past board chair, serve as WBBA’s Political Action Committee (BIOPAC) Board.
