The American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) is a leading organization in addressing the drug abuse epidemic. Their members are often affected by policies being pushed through the U.S. Congress. AAAP wanted the ability to participate more fully and increase their efficacy in creating and driving public policy.
Faegre Baker Daniels Consulting vetted communications from third parties to help AAAP take positions on policy, and directly lobbies Congress on issues of importance to the organization. The firm also helped procure placement for AAAP members on thought leadership panels to ensure their voice is heard on the topic of drug abuse.
FaegreBD also participated in AAAP board meetings and membership retreats in order to communicate issues and hear directly from the organization on their concerns, in order to put their ideas into actions.
