rapport-building techniques

State retail associations offer a valuable resource for retailers across the nation and can prove to be an important advocate. With rosters that include all types of retailers and other retail partners, state retail associations are organized to improve and advance the retail industry through close cooperation and mutual assistance, accomplished through the exchange of information on issues of importance to the associations and the members they represent. Providing a forum for retail public policy and government relations activity, these associations offer a shared voice to help retailers of all sizes with questions, concerns, and ideas on the important issues that are affecting the retail industry.

State associations are recognized by merchants, legislators, state officials and other trade groups as a powerful and effective beacon for the retail industry. These groups have been known to work directly with state and federal representatives to create and promote important legislation on important industry issues such as cargo theft, civil recovery, organized retail crime, and many other important industry initiatives. By providing government advocacy, regulatory and policy briefings. industry information regarding political, legislative, and regulatory issues, and education resources and events, they are designed to ensure retail concerns are met and protected.
