Have you determined that you need to register your lobbying activity and relationship with the Rhode Island Department of State?

Registering a lobbying relationship requires that both the lobbyist and the entity engaging the lobbyist both set up accounts with the new Lobbying Registration Desk. Then the entity will start the registration process by disclosing that they have engaged a lobbyist (or lobbying firm). The final step is for the lobbyist (or lobbying firm) to accept the engagement by the entity.

These step-by-step guides will walk you through the process of creating an account with the Lobbying Registration Desk and registering your relationship(s).
