State Association Advocacy Program
The State Association Advocacy Program is designed for executives of regional and state associations that advocate for NACS retail members, by providing resources to mobilize, support and boost advocacy efforts at the state and local levels. The goal is to increase the long-term profitability and competitiveness of the convenience retailing industry. Here are some of the benefits State Associations have through the program:
NACS offers expert speakers on relevant industry topics for your state association events.
Where applicable, NACS offers sponsorships for your events.
As a benefit to your members, NACS Daily news and magazine subscriptions are available.
Provides NACS news, events, and “calls to action” from your website to your members.
A summary of industry issues designed to provide talking points for productive conversations with elected officials and other key stakeholders.
Software tool to assist you in building & launching call to action campaigns.
Allows state associations to stay current on latest local actions affecting the industry.
Provides economic data on the industry’s impact at the state and county level as well as by senate and house member.
Multistate tracking is a great member benefit. It is the best way for me to stay on top of local communities' constant attacks and attempts to regulate our industry. In Utah, it seems like every municipality and community board wants to tighten restrictions on tobacco and alcohol sales and use."

“I share the Idaho State Economic Impact Report with elected officials, policy-makers and the press to reinforce the importance of our industry and to provide credible hard data to support the critical role we play every day in the lives of Idahoans. The rural nature of our state means C-stores, and the food and fuel we provide 24/7, are essential to the Idaho economy, visitors and our residents from Sandpoint to Soda Springs.”
- Suzi Budge, Idaho Petroleum Marketers & Convenience Store Association
