Join Us / Membership
Every year graduates descend on Brussel and national legislative assemblies to begin a journey of learning about public policy, legislative procedure and the interconnection between the ‘’outside world’’ and governmental institutions. Whether as interns or new hires each person is entering the world of public affairs. For many, this will bring them into or near the profession of lobbying, where they will join an already large number of professionals established in these cities.
Regardless of length of tenure in the role, lobbyists always need to network, improve their education and training and generally find time to learn new innovations and techniques applicable to the sector. LobbyEurope aims to provide that platform, working through SEAP.
