a few words from our president

dan_micaAfter nearly 40 years in Washington serving as Chief of Staff, a Member of Congress, and a successful President/CEO I am excited to share my experience and long-earned insight into the inner-workings of Capitol Hill. In an increasingly divided political environment I am proud to maintain a strong reputation as a bipartisan consensus builder, credible advisor and creative problem solver.


Each and every success I have been involved with throughout my career is largely due to the extraordinary teams of people I have had the pleasure to work with. The team of advisors and support that comprise The DMA Group continue this tradition. Our combined skills and abilities allow us to provide a wide range of services and support.


My goal, and the goal of everyone in my firm, is to provide knowledgeable counsel, true strategic guidance and a voice with key policy makers and leaders. With our mission, values and vision as our guiding principles, we look forward to assisting you.



Dan Mica



Our mission is to bring the highest levels of service and value
