    David Lusk joined the SHRM Government Affairs Team as the Senior Associate for Member Advocacy in July, 2010.  In this role, David oversees SHRM’s traditional member advocacy efforts.   He is also responsible for the development of the Advocacy Team, a new SHRM initiative that will elevate the visibility of the HR profession by establishing a strong member presence in each of the 435 congressional districts.  

    With over 15 years of policy experience, David most recently specialized in grassroots and grass tops engagement with Capitol Advantage -- now a part of the CQ-Roll Call Group – at a time when the internet was becoming a force in the public policy arena.  He also focused on health policy as a staff member for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce and in the state affairs department of the Health Insurance Association of America.  

    David graduated from Brown University with Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Business Economics and Public Policy.
