NRA Public Affairs Conference 2013
An IRA member delegation traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the NRA Public Affairs Conference 2013. The delegation both attended sessions hosted by the NRA on the importance of political advocacy, health care, minimum wage, immigration, swipe fees, and menu labeling as well as had meetings with Illinois legislators on Capitol Hill about important industry issues.
The Illinois delegation included John Colletti, Gibsons Restaurant Group; Dan Costello, Home Run Inn; Steven Hartenstein, Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants & Events; John Heil, Heil Insurance; Billy Lawless, The Gage and Henri; Steve Palmer, Palmer Place; Olivia Pantoja; Alicia Rocha, Texas De Brazil; Phil Stefani, Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants & Events; Jay Stieber, Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises; and Sam Toia, IRA President.
The IRA had an enormously successful trip. Thank you to all who attended this year's NRA Public Affairs Conference to fight for our industry.
