The Institute of Governmental Advocates (IGA), California’s professional association of lobbyists and government relations specialists, has announced the election of Wilke Fleury Partner, John Valencia, to its Board of Directors.
Founded in 1974, IGA’s mission is to protect and defend the First Amendment rights of lobbyists and government relations professionals to advocate on behalf of their clients before California’s Legislature and the Executive Branch of state government. The Institute of Governmental Advocates (IGA) is a voluntary, non-partisan association representing the leading professional lobbyists and lobbying firms in California’s Capitol.
IGA members subscribe to a voluntary code of conduct and professional ethics that go beyond what is required under the Fair Political Practices Act. IGA also works instill core values of integrity, honesty, and professionalism among the members of the “Third House” and pass along those values to the next generation of lobbyists.
