  • President
  • RILA
  • Washington, DC

As retailers continue to innovate to meet the challenges of a dynamic and changing economy, RILA will advocate for:

  • Trade policies that allow for efficient and reliable supply chains;
  • Privacy and data protection laws that protect consumers; 
  • Payment reforms that enhance competition and transparency; 
  • Criminal justice reforms that address the growing challenge of organized retail crime; and 
  • Workplace policies that promote diversity and flexibility. 

On these and other priorities, we look forward to working with policymakers of both parties to help shape a growing economy that allows retailers and the communities they serve to thrive.
