ANCOR Lobbyists Rodney Whitlock and Katie Weider Changed Firms – But Not Clients!

Share this page

Following inquiries by members who have seen Politico announcements that ANCOR’s contract lobbyists Rodney Whitlock and Katie Weider have left ML Strategies to now work for the firm McDermott+ Consulting, ANCOR is clarifying that we are still retaining their services despite the change. Rodney and Katie assist our Government Relations team with their Congressional expertise. We also retain Al Guida and Sarah Corcoran of Guide Consulting for that purpose.

Speaking of Rodney, don’t miss his Friday appearance on Politico Pulse Check, where he discussed upcoming drug pricing hearings. The issue might not be entirely relevant to I/DD, but it is a huge Congressional priority this year.

Like what you heard? Then join our special events such as our Government Relations Retreat (held every January), Annual Conference (held every spring) and Policy Summit and Hill Day (held every fall)! Our lobbyists usually make a charming, witty and highly informative appearance.

Speaking of the Annual Conference… did you register yet? Our early bird price cutoff is a few weeks away!
