Grocers Day at the Capitol 2020

It was a unique year for the Association’s annual lobby day as we moved the day’s event from the Capitol to Zoom. Sad to say, there was no ice cream social this year.

The day started with a morning informational session, designed to help attendees familiarize themselves with CGA’s priority issues. In the afternoon three tracks were created for member meetings with legislators.

There is a certain easiness that results from being at home rather than an official setting, and there were many productive conversations with elected officials — many of whom were also conducting their business from their home offices, bedrooms, or backyards.

The Association owes a debt of gratitude to all of our sponsors and attendees, who made the day possible. Both the timing and quality of this year’s meetings ensures the grocery industry will be top-of-mind for legislators in the final weeks of the legislative year.
