The mission of the Florida Association of Professional Lobbyists is to establish and maintain high standards for the lobbying profession.


FAPL has approximately 350 registered lobbyists as members. Lobbyists in Florida must register for the Legislative Branch and/or the Executive Branch, depending on which branch of government they work with.  There are more than 2,000 legislative lobbyists and nearly 1,700 executive branch lobbyists registered with the State of Florida. 

They represent a diverse group of companies, individuals, agencies, educational institutions, and non-profit associations.  Lobbyists operate in a manner of different business models.  Some operate independently, some in large lobbying firms, others are employees of agencies or institutions, and many are the directors or employees of non-profit associations.

The founders of FAPL are among the most senior members of the lobbying corps and bring many decades of combined experience.  FAPL is governed by a Board of Directors but ultimate power is vested in the membership as a whole.  Membership is open to any private or public sector lobbyist.  FAPL focuses on education and ethical conduct which fosters a lobby corps that is both knowledgeable and professional.

FAPL sets out explicit standards of conduct in dealing with public officials, clients, and other members of the lobby corps. Its principles are centered on honesty, integrity, and respect for the political process.
