Lend Your Voice to Ours

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.
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 a full-day event, featuring a morning legislative briefing, afternoon meetings with elected officials and the CGA’s President’s Reception at CGA headquarters. Members attending Grocers Day are assigned teams for meetings and are prepped by CGA staff prior to legislative visits.
In addition, CGA hosts its annual Ice Cream Social in the Capitol and a special GROPAC/IEC legislative dinner the evening prior to Grocers Day. More information on these events will be available soon. Questions? Contact Kelly Ash, Vice President, Government Relations, (916) 448-3545.
