How to be an effective advocate
  1. Recognize your value. Your opinion matters and your representatives want to hear from you.
  2. Understand the issues. There are so many issues facing retailers so it’s important to be informed.
  3. Use your voice. Share how legislative decisions affect your business.

Anyone can be
an advocate

Speaking to your elected officials may sound intimidating. That’s why we spend a full afternoon giving you an overview of what the meetings will be like, providing background on the issues and talking points, and scheduling time for you to meet with other retailers and NRF staff who will be meeting with you during your Hill visits.
