We champion the causes and issues that are important to you
as a home furnishings retailer.

Government Relations are a critical part of business. It is not just about the politics.
These relations are about important and pertinent issues such as:

  • The Marketplace Fairness Act for sales tax collection
  • Interchange fees on Bankcard processing
  • EPA regulations
  • Department of Transportation regulations

  • Tax reform, and much more.

industry & national associations and organizations to bring you the up-to-the-minute information on government
issues that may impact your business.

In addition, we do the research, gather the information, and we monitor these legislative and regulatory issues so
we can keep you well-informed in an effort to furnish you will the tools necessary to be fully prepared to take action
when needed. With your invaluable membership you can rest assured, knowing that you will be up-to-date and consistently
