Lobbying for Defense is a one-of-a-kind user's guide to lobbying for Defense appropriations. Matt Kambrod, who brings more than 40 years' experience serving in the U.S. Army and representing industry on Capitol Hill, offers the behind-the-scenes information and month-by-month actions necessary to be successful in securing dollars for unfunded Defense programs. He also covers topics of general interest, such as campaign contributions, visits to members of Congress in their states and in Washington, a practical list of lessons learned, and some discussion of possible reforms. A must-have tool for anyone interested in lobbying, hiring lobbyists, and interacting with lobbyists.
Matthew R. Kambrod is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and former Deputy for Aviation, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Research, Development, and Acquisition. He is currently a consultant and lobbyist in the private sector.
