President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

Dear Colleagues,

I am honored to be serving as President of the Maryland Government Relations Association (MGRA). As we navigate a world with unprecedented challenges resulting from the pandemic, MGRA serves as a resource to our members as they support associations, clients, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, as well as policymakers, both in person and virtually.

MGRA is the official professional association for all Maryland government affairs professionals, spanning the public and private sectors, from corporations to nonprofits. Although we represent a diverse set of interests, we share a common goal of advancing our profession with the highest level of ethics, integrity, and collaboration. MGRA has been leading this charge for nearly 40 years.

We continue to focus our efforts on ensuring the public’s access to and involvement in our democracy. As new technologies and public health considerations change how the public interacts with elected officials, MGRA serves as a reliable source of feedback to help improve system efficiencies that enhance access and transparency. We also lead and support efforts to ensure that the lobbying corps in Maryland reflects the diversity of our great state.

If you are part of this vital profession and are not yet a member, please consider joining. For those who are already members, we need your feedback and engagement. If you would like to get involved in our many social, professional, educational, and advocacy efforts, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any of our board members.

Our communities are strongest when we work together to solve problems. MGRA is committed to being a productive and positive contributor to finding solutions as we look toward a post-pandemic future of opportunities.

Yours,

 

Brian Frazee

President, MGRA (2022-2024)

Vice President, Government Affairs, Maryland Hospital Association
