Why Should I Attend?
Come to Washington, DC & Make Your Voice Heard!
With the 2014 elections approaching, elected officials need to hear from you about issues that impact our industry day after day. From tax reform, to labor and employment issues, to healthcare reform, the list of unfinished business remains extensive this year . So come to our Nation's beautiful Capitol during cherry blossom season and join hundreds of grocers from across the country to make the independent's voice heard by Congress.
Year after year grocers from across the country come to Washington, D.C. for the Annual Supermarket Congressional Fly-In to visit with their elected officials in Congress. Since legislators are most responsive to their constituents, your visit with them can have a far greater impact on their decisions they make than Washington, D.C. lobbyists.
So come to your Nation's Capitol this spring and show Congress what a huge economic footprint the grocery channel has on the economy and tell your Members of Congress how their decisions impact your daily operations, employees, customers, and your bottom line.
We hope to see you in April!
