NACS Day on the Hill
March 23 - March 24
Show Your Elected Officials that Convenience Matters.
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.
We’re Going Virtual in 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Capitol Hill isn’t open to visitors currently. However, lawmakers and their staff are still having virtual meetings with their constituents.
As a Virtual Day on the Hill attendee, you’ll still learn about the pressing issues affecting our industry, but you’ll be able to do it from the comfort of your home or office. Meetings will be structured similarly to how they would be for an in-person Day on the Hill, but they they’ll take place behind a screen instead of face to face.
NACS Makes It Easy.
Before you meet with lawmakers, NACS will prepare you with a training video and briefing materials for each issue prior to the event. During the General Session Webinar, you’ll learn more about the issues that you’ll be discussing with members of Congress and their staff. It will also allow you to get to know the industry peers you’ll be teamed with for each virtual Hill meeting. 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, briefing materials, and training on how to participate in a successful virtual 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.
The new Congress is being sworn in this January and they need to hear from our industry. NACS Day on the Hill will provide you with a better understanding of current industry issues, how they directly affect the way you do business, and how they are being legislated. 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 Virtual Day on the Hill!
