Transportation Secretary to address NRF Leadership Conference

12
May '09
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will be the keynote speaker as senior government relations executives from retail companies gather this week for the National Retail Federation's 74th annual Washington Leadership Conference (May 11-13, 2009).

LaHood is scheduled to speak at 1 p.m. Tuesday in the Ballroom of the National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C. LaHood is expected to discuss the Obama Administration's efforts to improve the nation's transportation infrastructure and its impact on the retail industry. News coverage is invited. Crews needing setup time should arrive by 12:30 p.m.

In addition, Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is scheduled to speak at 8:15 a.m. on Wednesday, also in the National Press Club Ballroom, followed by House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., at 9 a.m. Hatch and Clyburn will discuss pending legislation that affects the retail industry.

While the LaHood, Hatch and Clyburn events are open to the news media, the remainder of the two-day conference consists of private meetings that are closed.

WLC is the premiere legislative event for the retail industry each year, attended by more than 150 senior retail company government relations executives, state retail association officials and others. Retailers hear from senior Administration and congressional officials and participate in dozens of lobbying meetings on Capitol Hill.
