The Director of Federal Affairs cultivates expertise in a number of regulatory areas important to TPAs (third party administrators) and serves as a resource to and liaison with federal officials. Likewise, he/she monitors and writes about the Washington
political scene as it relates to employee benefit issues relevant to member TPAs, and offers insights into future actions. Knowledge of the employee benefit regulatory environment (health) impacting member TPAs is required or must be developed. The
Director works collaboratively with the government relations team to understand the issues being followed and worked. Ability to interface collaboratively with federal agency officials and understand the issue from the policymaker perspective is
required to be an effective liaison. Existing federal agency relations in our target area is a plus.
The trade association is nonpartisan. TPA member clients reflect a wide variety of political opinions and the association does not want to
serve as a source of conflict with client political leanings. The staff does not engage in active lobbying of members of Congress (with some rare exceptions). We provide insights and education and encourage our members to develop relationships with
their congressional representatives as people who have a real-world perspective on what will and will not work.
