Government Affairs Committee

Overview

RILA’s Government Affairs Committee is made up of lobbyists, lawyers, and other government relations executives either based in Washington, D.C. or their company headquarters. The committee helps shape RILA's public policy agenda and advocacy efforts at the federal level. Policy issues the committee navigates include trade, workforce, payments, tax, health care, transportation, privacy and cybersecurity, among many others.  

The retail industry is constantly impacted by the array of policy battles on Capitol Hill. This committee seeks to educate and engage with lawmakers and their staff on how proposed legislation can be either beneficial or harmful to the retail industry. The Government Affairs Committee holds biannual meetings in Washington, D.C. where executives come together to hear from lawmakers and their staff, discuss trending policy issues and share their successes and opportunities in how their companies engage with legislators.  

For more information on the Government Affairs Committee, please contact Jennifer Safavian, executive vice president of government affairs.
