NGA is the Only Organization Advocating Solely for the Independent Grocer on Capitol Hill

Effective and credible representation of the independent supermarket industry is the primary goal of NGA's Government Relations team. This includes enhancing and creating new relationships with elected officials and their staff, identifying opportunities for NGA and its members to testify before Congress, and making NGA the “go to" organization for Congressional leaders looking for information and resources on the independent grocery industry.
