MHA, Mitchell Recognized for Lobbying Effectiveness

Posted on May 29, 2019

Chris MitchellThe MHA was recognized as one of the most effective associations in the state according to the latest Michigan Insider’s Survey released by MIRS May 29. MIRS is a Lansing-based report detailing news and activities for the legislative, judicial and executive branches of Michigan’s state government and first began the survey in 2005.

In the survey, the MHA was selected as the second-most effective association in the state when respondents were asked, “Thinking about Lansing’s membership organizations or associations, which one membership group do you think does the most effective lobbying job?” The Michigan Chamber of Commerce was voted the most effective association, marking the seventh time the organization has received that honor in the survey.

Chris Mitchell, executive vice president, Advocacy & Public Affairs, was recognized as one of the most effective association lobbyists in the state. Mitchell tied for third place with the lobbyist for the Michigan Association of School Administrators.

The survey included responses from 520 legislators, lobbyists, staff members and other insiders in and around Lansing. It was conducted online from April 23 through May 11 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6%.
