Impacting Legislation and Public Policy

Communications strategist and PPRA past president Jeff Jubelirer joins two of our region's sought after lobbyists to discuss PR and Lobbying: the art of building relationships to impact legislation, public policy and government budgets.

Jeff Jubelirer, president of Jubelirer Strategies, is widely recognized as one of the top corporate communications and public relations strategists in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Perhaps best known for his unparalleled expertise in issue & crisis management and public policy advocacy, Jeff is the "go to" media person and political analyst for Fox 29 and NBC 10.

Daniel F. McElhatton is a partner in The Echo Group. For five years, he served as Chief of Staff to U.S. Representative Allyson Schwartz, responsible for guiding the Congresswoman's legislative, policy and political priorities in both Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. as well as managing her Ways and Means Committee and Budget Committee legislative staff.  Prior to his work in Washington DC,  Dan served under Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, working in the Pennsylvania Department of Labor with a focus on post-secondary education and workforce development. 

Ted Christian oversees GSP Consulting's operations in Eastern Pennsylvania, bringing a background that has spanned the business, governmental and political arenas for the past 12 years.  Most recently, Ted was the State Director for the McCain-Palin campaign in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Ted has also worked on congressional races, ran a state party and worked for a national party committee.  He served for nearly four years in the federal government, as senior adviser to the Regional Administrator for the U.S. General Services Administration's Mid-Atlantic region, the premier procurement and acquisition agency in the world.
