Lend Your Voice to Ours
April 6, 2022
The Citizen Hotel
There is no substitute for connecting 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 return to an in-person event.
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.
Grocers Day is taking a new shape for 2022. This year, members will convene at The Citizen Hotel to receive comprehensive briefings on the most pressing issues impacting our industry and state. Attendees will learn everything they need to know about current California policy, with a focus on CalOSHA’s permanent regulations, recycling, PAGA initiative, and local political elections.
The one-day advocacy event will include presentations from legislative and regulatory leaders, issue experts, and politicians. Louie Brown (Kahn, Soares & Conway, LLP) will host a fireside chat with legislators, giving members the opportunity to ask questions and share their own perspectives through guided conversation. Our day will conclude with an evening President’s Reception.
