NRA Public Affairs Conference: April 17 - 18, 2013



Spend two days and one night in Washington, DC, with hundreds of your industry peers and colleagues talking about the issues that matter to your restaurant company. Gain valuable political insights and get a better understanding of how today's top legislative issues will affect your business -- and your bottom line -- in the coming year.

These two days in Washington, D.C., are the best investment you can make in your business all year. The NRA Public Affairs Conference is THE event for leaders in our industry to join forces and carry the industry's message to Congress on behalf of restaurateurs nationwide. See the agenda and join us April 17 to 18.


  • Learn how pending health care regulations apply to your business -- and what you can do about it.

  • Get the latest on immigration and tax reform talks in Washington.

  • Make a difference when you carry our industry's "America Works Here" message to Congress. Tell Congress that America's restaurant industry, with 13.1 million employees at nearly 1 million locations, is the nation's second-largest private-sector employer.


Registration is $145 for NRA members through March 15, and $165 after that. Non-members pay $250. Register online today.


Take advantage of the special National Restaurant Association rate of $299 (plus tax) per night at the Renaissance Downtown in Washington, DC. Use group code "NRANRAA." Book your rooms online today; preferred room rates are available through March 15 on a first-come, first-served basis.
