Retail Advocates Town Halls

NRF’s Retail Advocates Town Hall program convenes retailers for exclusive conversations with key policymakers on retail’s future in public policy. These virtual events empower retailers to share their stories and build relationships with leading lawmakers.

The next Retail Advocates Town Hall is scheduled for Wednesday, October 20th from 2-3:30 pm. The theme of the event is “From Retail to Representative”. From first jobs to lifelong careers, retail launches more people into employment than any other. This virtual event will highlight the stories of members of Congress who pivoted their retail background or career into public service.  

Contact Meghan Cruz with any questions about the Retail Advocates Town Hall series.
