The Retail Council of New York State’s experienced and respected government relations team delivers effective advocacy at the state and local level for merchants large and small. We work with our members to create and advance a comprehensive agenda, communicating the retail industry’s message to lawmakers, state and local agencies and the media.

Joining the Retail Council saved me 50% on my workers’ compensation insurance. Working with their staff made the transition quick and easy. I’d encourage all retailers in New York to learn more about their products and services. I wish I had known about them years ago.
