Every day, members of Congress work on legislation that can have a very real impact on you and your business. The annual NACS Day on the Hill, formerly known as the 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.
Before you go to Capitol Hill to speak directly with lawmakers, NACS will prepare you with training videos, webinars, and briefing materials prior to the event. The afternoon General Session will focus on getting to know 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. We are dedicated to training you to be a strong advocate both in your Hill meetings the next day and beyond.
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.
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!

—At NACS Day on the Hill, we take a deep dive into the legislation that’s affecting our industry, and then talk face-to-face with members of Congress—so they understand the impact it has on our stores. To know my story is influencing decisions on Capitol Hill is invaluable.”
