Our Spring Privacy Meeting in Washington, D.C. will focus on global, federal and state privacy issues, including proposed U.S. federal privacy legislation and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The CCPA was a hot topic of discussion at our January 2019 Winter Privacy Meeting in Los Angeles, and it continues to be the state privacy law of greatest interest to our members at this time.
We are planning a program that will provide members with the information they need regarding the potential impact the CCPA could have on retail operations when it becomes effective in 2020, as well as industry efforts to address retailers’ shared concerns with the CCPA. We will also examine the joint comments of the NRF and the California Retailers Association to the Attorney General of California and our opportunities to help modify the CCPA to address retail concerns through the Attorney General rulemaking process and through legislation amending the CCPA.
In addition to the CCPA’s impact on retail businesses in California, we will also discuss the influence the CCPA is already having in 2019 on the development of other state privacy laws and proposed federal privacy legislation. This May will be an opportune time for retailers to review remaining state legislative activity and federal data privacy legislation being considered in Congress.
The NRF Spring Privacy Meeting will begin with a hosted networking breakfast followed by full day of presentations and discussions with leading speakers, as well as time for members to discuss and share their views on the issues.
For those who arrive in town the evening before, NRF will host an outdoor evening cocktail reception for members on the rooftop of NRF's building.
A preliminary agenda for the meeting will be provided to registered members in early April.
