About Us

Washington Representatives, a division of Columbia Books and Information Services, is the leading provider of reference information and data on and for the government relations and lobbying industry--specializing in providing associations, corporations and advocacy groups with fully customized tools and products for their individual needs.

We printed our first lobbying directory in 1977 and, before we knew it, Washington Representatives was deemed the “K Street Bible” and became a pivotal tool for the Government Relations professional. Naturally, as information gathering changed with the Internet, we saw a growing demand to have access to this information online. So in 2006, we created Lobbyists.info and dedicated staff to adding more information (like PACs and 527 Groups) in addition to maintaining daily updates. Beginning in 2009 we added the US Congress Online database and The Compliance Center, giving Government Relations professionals more industry access than ever before.

Washington Representatives today incorporates a full suite of products and services for the government relations and advocacy community from traditional printed texts like Washington Representatives and the Almanac of American Politics to cutting edge digital advocacy tools like the Advocacy Day Assistant, Lobbyists.info and the US Congress Online. We also provide advertising services directly to the Congressional audience through the Rover: Fetching Data for Govt app and the traditional Congressional Edition of the US Congress Handbook.
