Art has spent thirty years in legislative and regulatory practice based in Washington, DC, but also encompassing various international as well as state level issues.  He has successfully handled postal affairs, travel, intellectual property, privacy and other information and digital matters critical to operations or bottom lines for corporations, trade associations and coalitions.  He has also negotiated contracts, in the United States and abroad, with postal authorities.  Whether founding or running groups with heavy FORTUNE 100 participation, such as the National Postal Policy Council, the Mailers Council or the Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, as VP/Law and Policy for Time Warner or General Counsel to the National Newspaper Association, he has consistently played a leadership role in resolving postal issues routinely worth billions of dollars in the aggregate.  He has paralleled this success in other areas of expertise, running associations and coalitions, such as the Interactive Travel Services Association, the Coalition to Preserve the American Copyright Tradition, Open Allies for Airfare Transparency, the Digital Honesty Campaign and more.  He feels privileged to have been asked to serve on several federal government advisory bodies.
