Welcome to the Washington Government Relations Group (WGRG).
The Washington Government Relations Group (WGRG) is the premier organization dedicated to the enrichment of African-American government relations professionals. As a non-partisan, independent, volunteer association our members represent a diverse cross section of corporations, financial institutions, law firms, trade associations and non-profit organizations on various policy matters in the state, federal, and international arena. This organization seeks to increase dialogue between our members and key senior-level policy makers in order to help shape the development of superior and well-vetted public policy solutions. The WGRG helps foster both professional and social advancement amongst its membership through a variety of regularly scheduled educational programming and events that bring together stakeholders and key leaders from the public and private sectors. These individuals provide insight into the priorities and direction of various officials and staff of the Administration, Congress and government agencies of interest.
As the non-profit charitable giving arm, the WGRG Foundation helps fund the Terri Grier Memorial Scholarship Program for African–American students in their final year of undergraduate or graduate study in political science or public/government affairs. If you are not yet involved with the WGRG, now is the time to learn about our member benefits, and join this rapidly expanding organization.
