CQ Press Political Contact Suite

CQ Press has launched its renowned Political Contact Suite, available for the first time in an online format, giving government relations professionals fast access to contact and profile information for key political decision makers.

Previously only available in print as the highly regarded "redbooks," this integrated online resource is comprised of eight authoritative directories including Congressional Staff Directory, Federal Staff Directory, Judicial Staff Directory, Homeland Security Directory, World PowerBase, Washington Information Directory and Almanac of Federal PACs.

Users will find answers to questions such as: Who are President Obama's appointees and staffers? Where did they previously work? Which members of Congress serve on which committees? Who makes significant campaign contributions? And, most importantly, how can they be reached? With almost 170,000 contacts, profiles and biographies for the members and staff of Congress, the federal government and the judiciary, as well as nongovernmental organizations, this is an unmatched source of information for business and law school students, career services, alumni offices and others.

In addition, the Political Contact Suite incorporates cross-searching capabilities across CQ Press publications such as CQ Weekly, CQ Researcher and CQ Almanac and makes this vital information even easier to access. New list-building and downloading capabilities allow users to arrange contact information into manageable spreadsheets with a few mouse clicks. Discover the benefits, including:

       Exclusive, in-depth biographies and profiles
       Daily updates
       Keyword and advanced search functionality
       Personalized profile set-up options
       Unlimited users
       Usage statistics (COUNTER Compliant)
