AAAA Director of State Affairs
In a groundbreaking commitment to support licensure expansion, practice issue resolution and federal affairs, The American Academy of Anesthesiologist Assistants hired Mr. Jeremy Betts as the organization’s first Director of State Affairs. The engagement represents the completion of an 18-month strategic initiative by the AAAA Board to bring full-time advocacy to undergird state academy work throughout the country.
Jeremy brings a decade of hands-on, state-level public policy development and lobbying experience to AAAA’s advocacy initiatives. A Magna Cum Laude graduate of Georgia State University’s political science department, Jeremy was top policy staff for the Georgia House Health and Human Services and, later, policy counsel to the powerful Ways and Means Committee. He has consulted on numerous election campaigns and worked for one of the southeast’s largest lobbying and government relations companies.
