Government Affairs

The New Hampshire Retail Associations primary focus is to serve as a link between state legislators in Concord and the retailers we represent. Our members cannot leave their stores to attend legislative committee meetings and hearings. Our lobbyist is constantly monitoring, researching and testifying at the State House on our member’s behalf. The NH Retail Association protects retailers from the constant threat of increased taxes and other legislative mandates which directly impact our members’ profit margins.

We maintain regular contact with other lobbyists and organizations on the state and federal level to provide an accurate and effective network of information for our members. You’re never alone when you’re a member of the NH Retail Association. Membership gives you the opportunity to speak with a single voice on the legislative matters that are important for running your business.

NH Retail Association’s President and CEO, Nancy C. Kyle, works in conjunction with Curtis Barry, Partner at the The Dupont Group, one of New Hampshire’s leading government affairs firms. Founded in 1992 by former NH Senate President, Edward C. Dupont, the Dupont Group focuses their practice primarily on business related issues.

Thanks to our members, the New Hampshire Retail Association continues to advance in effectiveness and prominence within state government.  We are a go-to business group when legislators seek input on business, labor and other issues.
