Why Senior Lobbyists Teach Lobbying – Chris Micheli, to Give Back to the Profession I Love

Chris Micheli is a many published author and co-author of Guide to Executive Branch Agency Rulemaking, the manual on lobbying agencies prior to the statutorily mandated APA public notice of rulemaking. Prior to APA notice, agencies revise draft rule language, iron out technical and political rule-delaying problems, consider impacts and responses from potentially regulated parties, estimate costs of implementation and enforcement, and during which interest group lobbying most impacts the final rule.  

I have long enjoyed giving back to my profession and advocating for it wherever I go. Having written several books recently, as well as dozens of articles about the profession, I believe it is important for me to give back to my colleagues and my profession because it has afforded me a wonderful professional career. I love the institution (California Legislature), the process, and the lobbying profession. I enjoy educating others about the lobbying field, especially students and other professionals looking to get into this field. In addition, I have been teaching several law school courses on lobbying and the legislative process, as well as giving seminars about legislative and regulatory advocacy. These opportunities allow me to share my knowledge and educate those who want to learn about lobbying and state government. There is a lot of satisfaction in helping others, answering questions, and promoting a profession I deeply respect and enjoy.
