What type of lobbyist am I?
A Client Lobbyist is the party paying for lobbying services on its behalf. In other words, the client lobbyist is expending or agreeing to expend the threshold amount of $3,000 in a calendar year.
A Communicator Lobbyist receives payment and does the actual lobbying legwork (i.e., communicating). A Communicator Lobbyist receives or agrees to receive $3,000 for lobbying activities in a calendar year. Communicator Lobbyists can take different forms:
- Member of a Business Organization (e.g., a firm or association that employs a number of communicator lobbyists)
- In-house Communicator (a lobbyist who is a salaried employee of a Client Lobbyist)
