Consistency of Message to Federal Government

Policy on Consistency of Message to Federal Government

To ensure the consistency of the IAFC message to both the administration and Congress, and to further the IAFC policies at the federal level, it is essential that IAFC members clear their IAFC representations and comments with the IAFC.

IAFC members cannot represent the views or positions of IAFC without prior IAFC approval. Dissimilar positions or statements from IAFC members concerning policies and positions, if espoused in the name of IAFC, will damage this organization’s ability to successfully conduct its business on Capitol Hill, with local departments and with agencies of the federal government.
