To Advocate is to take the chance to gain an advantage, which is what NAA members and affiliates do on Capitol Hill every March. They gather. They network. They learn the issues. Then they take action with the collective goal of bringing the industry's issues in front of all 535 members of Congress.

Advocate, previously known as the NAA Capitol Conference and Lobby Day, had a new schedule this year with the issues briefing and Lobby Day on Tuesday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 14, followed by NAA and NAAEI governance and committee meetings on Thursday, March 15 and Friday, March 16.
