'23 Public Affairs Conference


We will be heading to our Nation’s Capital June 19-21, 2023. This conference is a must-attend for restaurant operators. Not only will you meet with federal lawmakers who have tremendous influence over our industry, but you’ll also hear incredible speakers, enjoy opportunities to network with your fellow Texans in DC, and learn about our advocacy work. Last year the Texas delegation was second largest (thanks to Ohio); this year we’re determined to retake the lead.

In addition to advocating for our industry there will be an opportunity to enjoy Washington DC with your families. Why not consider spending Father's Day with the family in DC before joining the Conference, or staying after to enjoy our nation's Capital?
