The Montana Group features the largest and most experienced lobbying team in Montana, with over fifty years combined statehouse experience. Our expertise extends across multiple issue areas, including: technology, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, telecommunications, agriculture, and land use.
A grassroots movement usually starts with just a handful of committed activists passionate about an issue. From there it can snowball into a full-fledged advocacy organization with enough critical mass to become a sustained effort. But what determines whether an organization flourishes or fails is how it establishes its foundation.
Utilizing our expertise in organizational management, public relations, and issue advocacy, the Montana Group has helped to create dozens of advocacy organizations. Some have been short term to achieve a policy objective. Others have evolved over a number of years in order to shape public opinion in a sustained manner.
With large geographic distances and an even larger diversity of culture, the political landscape in Montana can be difficult to navigate. We have a tremendous amount of campaign management experience, both for political candidates and initiative campaigns. Our partners Chuck Denowh and Shelby DeMars have served in a campaign roles ranging from communications to finance to full-scale management.
We are the premier ballot initiative management consultants in Montana. We’ve managed three successful initiative campaigns, including the two most-recent successful Constitutional amendments passed in Montana: CI-116 in 2016 and CI-105 in 2010.
