The goal of the MACEP Government Affairs Committee was formed to develop and advocate for effective governmental policies, and educate policy makers and members by:

1. Expand number of members participating in committee
2. Expand communications on legislative actions within MACEP
3. Develop a proactive legislative agenda and strategies
4. Advance strategic priorities through effective legislative advocacy
5. Build contacts with coalitions, organizations, and individuals with similar interests (e.g. MBHP, MMS, etc).
6. Identify regulatory topics for potential task force development and action (e.g. managed care advisory)
