NRA Public Affairs Conference


The National Restaurant Association Public Affairs Conference is the most important week for restaurant operators to have their voices heard in Washington, D.C. Over 650 industry professionals attend each year. Here’s what some of them have to say:

“What led me to this conference is I believe that these stories are what need to be told and I believe that the public and legislators really need to hear from people who’ve lived it.”

“I believe legislators are very well intentioned, trying to address very real issues in this country. But they don’t have all the information needed about our industry and how our industry works.”

“Come to D.C. and see the experience for yourself. Just being in the building, walking with others and going into these offices and talking would change your perspective.”
