ALEXANDRIA, Va.—NACS Day on the Hill is back in person this year after being held virtually for the past two years. The annual event takes place March 7-8, and convenience store retailers cannot afford to miss this opportunity to advocate for their businesses, and ultimately, c-stores across the U.S.
Every day, members of Congress work on legislation that can have a very real impact on c-store retailers and their businesses. NACS Day on the Hill educates retailers on how to be the best advocate for their business and brings them face to face with policymakers. The conference gives advocates the opportunity to tell their business’s story and share how policies will directly affect them and the industry.
“It’s a safe bet that you know your business better than most other people, including most members of Congress,” Matt Durand, senior counsel, legislative and regulatory, EG America, told NACS Magazine in an upcoming article. “If we want congressional members and their staff to learn and fully appreciate the issues we’re dealing with, it’s incumbent on us to tell our story. And there’s no better way to tell our story to a congressional office than going to discuss it with them in person.”
NACS makes it easy to make your voice heard. Before you go to Capitol Hill to speak directly with lawmakers, NACS prepares you with training videos, webinars and briefing materials prior to hitting the Hill. The event’s general session will focus on getting to know the issues that you’ll be discussing with members of Congress and their staff, followed by a networking reception so you can get to know other likeminded industry peers.
NACS is dedicated to training you to be a strong advocate both in your Hill meetings during Day on the Hill and beyond.
Register today for NACS Day on the Hill, so you can be a part of the conversation and help protect the future of the convenience retailing industry.
