 About

 

Help Show Elected Officials that Convenience Matters
Every day, members of Congress work on legislation that can have very real impacts on you and your business. The annual NACS Government Relations Conference educates you on how to be the best advocate for your business and brings you face to face with your policymakers. The conference gives you the opportunity to explain your business and share how policies will directly affect your business and our industry.

NACS makes it easy.

Before you go on Capitol Hill to speak directly with lawmakers, NACS prepares you with onsite training and briefing materials for each issue. The morning session of the conference day is dedicated to advocate training, training to you to a strong advocate both in your Hill meetings the next day and beyond. The afternoon session will focus on the issues that you’ll be discussing with members of Congress and their staff and allow you time to get to know the industry peers you’ll be teamed with for hitting the Hill.

The team at NACS:

  • schedules your Congressional meetings and pairs you with other convenience retailers and experienced advocates;
  • prepares you with pre-reads, on site briefing materials and training on how to participate in a successful congressional meeting;
  • provides you with all of the information you need to share with your elected officials; and
  • equips you with knowledge and skills you can apply immediately back home.

Why Attend?
This conference provides you with a better understanding of current industry issues, how they directly affect the way you do business, and how they are being legislated. It also offers an opportunity for you to interact with retailers facing the same challenges and issues. And most importantly, it gives you the opportunity to educate members of Congress about issues they’re voting on. They want to hear from their constituents and people like you – people who live and work hard each day —so that they can do their jobs better for the people who elected them. As a constituent, your voice matters. Be a part of the conversation and help protect convenience across the country by attending this year’s conference!
