Who Can Attend?
The NPA Legislative Conference is open to all current NPA pawnbroker members.
Why Should I Attend?
Make your voices heard! The last election cycle produced a balance of power shift in D.C. along with over 100 new elected officials. Your participation in the NPA Legislative Conference is more important than ever and crucial in the effort to protect our industry. Tell your story to members of Congress and their staff.
The conference is designed to build and reinforce relationships between you, the constituents, and your members of Congress and their staff. Your participation helps create a greater understanding by Congress of the important role the pawn industry plays in serving the financial needs of Americans.
NPA members are welcome to join the NPA board of Directors meeting and Government Relations Committee meeting during the afternoon on the Monday before.
On Tuesday, April 30, enjoy breakfast and an overview of “what’s happening” in Congress to prepare you for your afternoon Hill visits followed by a debriefing dinner. Your attendance and assessment of your Hill visits are of utmost importance in providing direction for our advocacy efforts.
