Georgia Association of Convenience Stores


GACS Legislative Representation

Since 1973, GACS has been the voice for Georgia's convenience store industry. Our staff monitors legislation daily during the Georgia General Assembly (January-April) and reports legislation to the membership on a regular basis. As a cohesive force, we have fought many legislative battles and won! But only because of our strength as an industry & each members' loyalty to GACS and its mission.

Each January, we host a Day on the Hill and Legislative Reception so GACS members can meet with their state legislators.

Political Action Committee

In 1987 GACS established GACSPAC, a political action committee to support candidates who support the convenience store industry. As a state PAC, GACSPAC accepts personal and/or corporate contributions subject to state guidelines and limits. Contributions to GACSPAC are not deductible as a business expense.

GACS Action Center LogoWith retailers and supplier partners throughout Georgia, our industry has the potential reach to impact elected officials throughout out state. Recognizing this, in 2011 GACS set up the GACS Action Center through VoterVoice, a nationally recognized grassroots system whose clients include NACS and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. VoterVoice matches members with their state and federal elected officials, both at where they live and work. More than 1,300 GACS member employees can now contact their representatives with a simple touch of a button. Find your legislator now.

If you are not yet in the GACS Action Center, download the form and return it to GACS or register online.



“GACS gives us peace of mind that we’ll never miss any legislative or regulatory changes that may impact our business. Angela and her team have also been helpful in connecting us with state agents to swiftly resolve challenges that would have negatively affected our business. They are an integral resource for the Georgia c-store industry.”
Matt Clements, Enmarket

Together we are stronger!
