Our meeting this January in California will focus on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which was enacted this past summer. The CCPA was a hot topic of discussion at our September privacy meeting in Las Vegas, 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 outlook for CCPA amendments to be enacted in 2019 before the new law takes effect, and advocacy opportunities for the retail industry to help influence the outcome.
In addition to the CCPA’s impact on retail businesses in California, we will also preview the potential influence the CCPA could have in 2019 on the development of other state privacy laws and proposed federal privacy legislation. Following the 2018 holiday season, this January will be an opportune time for retailers to look ahead to 2019 as state legislative sessions begin and the consideration of federal data privacy legislation commences in Congress.
The NRF Winter Privacy Meeting will begin with a hosted networking lunch followed by an afternoon of presentations and discussions with leading speakers, as well as time for members to discuss and share their views on the issues. We will complete our day in Marina del Rey with an outdoor evening cocktail reception for members at the Ritz-Carlton immediately following the close of our meeting.
A preliminary agenda for the meeting will be provided to registered members in early January.
