Lend Your Voice to Ours
August 4, 2020
There is no substitute for meeting with elected officials face-to-face. This is the power of Grocers Day at the Capitol; CGA’s signature advocacy event, which takes place each spring. This year’s Grocers Day will have a new wrinkle – it will be virtual.
The Public Policy Institute of California’s “Statewide Survey” consistently ranks jobs and the economy as the most important issue facing the state’s residents. As one of the state’s largest employers, Grocers Day at the Capitol gives our industry the opportunity to educate elected officials on the impact legislation and regulations have on grocers and their employees — as well as the downstream effect on constituent priorities.
This year due to restrictions in response to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic Grocers Day will be virtual. The one-day advocacy event will include presentations from legislative and regulatory leaders and face-to-face virtual meetings with state legislators and their staff. Members attending our virtual Grocers Day are assigned teams for meetings and will be prepped by CGA staff prior to legislative visits.
