Join us March 27 and March 28, 2019, in Washington, D.C., for the restaurant industry's most important grassroots lobbying event. The National Restaurant Association Public Affairs Conference is your chance to make a difference on policy that affects your business.

Your firsthand knowledge of the restaurant industry is critical. We depend on you to represent the nation’s second-largest private sector employer on Capitol Hill. Your visits to congressional offices educate lawmakers about our top public policy issues.

Moderator: Margaret Brennan, host, CBS Face the Nation.
