Is Your Senior Officer Lobbying?
In-house Lobbyists: when listing your lobbying employees, you must also list the senior officer if he or she is lobbying.
The registrations for in-house lobbyists are always created and submitted in the name of the entity and the entity’s senior officer, i.e. the CEO of the entity, not the most senior officer responsible for managing the lobbying activities, such as the Vice President or Director of Government Relations. This applies even if the senior officer is not involved in any lobbying activity.
And what if the senior officer is also lobbying? The registration must include that individual’s name and title in the list of active lobbyists. It isn’t sufficient just to have the registration in the senior officer’s name – they need to be identified as being a lobbyist, too.
