Public Affairs.


Policy matters. You want to be advocating for sound policies that promote the public good, not just your own.

And today, politics matter more than ever. In today’s hyper-political, hyper-partisan environment, you can’t afford to get the politics of an issue wrong. One bad event can ricochet across the Internet and do untold damage before you even have time to react.

When an issue as narrow and as innocuous as the Export-Import Bank can become a litmus test for activists in one of the major parties, then virtually anything is fair game.

At DCI Group our job is to help prepare our clients for any circumstance. We’ll help you get your policy goals over the finish line; and we’ll design strategies to protect you from regulatory, political, and reputational harm.

It’s important to get both the policy and the politics right on public issues. That's the sweet spot, and if you can occupy it your chances for success go up dramatically.

State & Local


Federal policymaking in Washington, DC gets most of the attention, but state and local laws and regulations can have a much more direct impact on daily lives — and the local officials crafting these policies are often more receptive to engaging with their constituents and community leaders throughout the process.

Our Strategy & Case Studies

Where the federal government fails to act, state and local governments are increasingly assertive and fill the void with their own laws and regulations. These can then become the blueprint for other states and even Congress.

Did you know that in the 2020 election cycle, after voters in the 44 states with regularly scheduled legislative races went to the polls and elected nearly 6,000 state legislators and 11 governors, the result was the least amount of partisan change in almost 100 years?

In an environment with entrenched partisanship, successfully engaging with policymakers on the state and local levels requires a well-developed plan, an authentic message, an understanding of key local issues and concerns, a team with long-established relationships, and a commitment to execution.

The pandemic has proven how quickly interacting with policymakers can change. Legislatures have opted for remote hearings and have closed government buildings to the public. While any number of restrictions may make registering input more challenging, we know how to adjust to these new realities given our vast experience.

Strategic Communications.


It all starts with research and messaging.

Learn More

Original research that helps inform and frame your issue – and your opposition – correctly; consumer research to understand what people are thinking, and how they react to certain words and concepts; and knowledge about what will be most impactful for specific policy-makers.

You have a story to tell, and it’s our job to help ensure the story is told on your terms and to the right people for maximum impact.

Activation.

Policy-makers are more attuned to their constituents than ever before, in large part due to the ubiquitous nature of online communication and social media. Elected officials go to incredible lengths to stay in touch with politics at home, and no policy-maker wants to be out-of-step with the people he or she represents.

Sometimes you’ll need quantity – a large volume of constituent input designed to make a specific point. Other times a handful of very-high quality contacts from local, influencers will do the job. We can deliver in either case, and will design the program that best suits your needs.

The key is the ability to execute. Whether it’s a labor-intensive, field-centric approach…or a digital/social media strategy… or the need for media coverage in targeted news outlets that’s required, DCI Group can deliver results for you.

Ensuring the appropriate input from the right people can help ensure you win.
