This month’s featured resource is the Leadership Connect database. It was previously known as Leadership Library and many of you may be familiar with it by the nickname given to its print counterpart, the Yellow Books. The directories in Leadership Connect contain detailed contact information—including emails and direct-dials for individuals working in federal, state and local governments, companies, news media, law and lobbying firms, professional associations and nonprofits.
The law firm directories include 82,000 individuals in leadership roles including managing partners, practice heads, judges, and law clerks. The database allows you to search across law firm headquarters, branch offices, committees, and practice groups. You can also filter by attorney specialty, practice area, firm size, or location and view contact details and biography information.
The Congressional directory includes entries for representatives, chiefs of staff, legislative directors, legislative assistants, schedulers. The media directory includes 60,000 media contacts for editors, reporters, producers, guest bookers, columnists, bloggers and online journalists, researchers, hosts, and senior management. You are able to view listings for reporters broken out by bureaus/desks, with full contact info and social media accounts.
