As a retailer with a presence in Texas, we wanted to invite you to join the Texas Retailers Association and become involved in the legislative process that affects your business and your bottom line!

Past State Legislative and Congressional sessions have shown us that the retail industry needs to stand together and stay informed about the key issues like the ones we faced recently:

  • Inventory Property Tax
  • Dark Stores
  • Pro-Business Issues
  • Employment Regulations
  • Tax Reform
  • Border Adjustment Tax
  • Swipe Fees

In addition, the impact of Hurricane Harvey was unlike anything we have ever seen. Retailers stepped up and ensured their support and disaster relief efforts were there for the Houston community. Texas Retailers stood together and met every challenge this year, thus cementing TRA as the leading industry voice in Texas for the 85th Legislature and 115th Congress.

What does that mean for you? It means that you’ll have membership to the most influential industry group in Texas. Our members are great advocates for business; we’ve been doing this since 1926!

The Benefits of Membership

Your Membership in the Texas Retailers Association includes:

  • Access to advocacy and regulatory services at the local, state, and federal levels courtesy of the Texas Retailers Association.
  • Access to discounted Business Insurance Products, Energy & Utilities, Tax & Legal Services and Consulting through the Texas Retailers Association.

  • Access to sponsorship opportunities and targeted communications and marketing.
  • Discount on Registration and Exhibit Booths at all TRA Events (Advocacy Summit and Texas Retailers Forum).

As we move into a pivotal election year in 2018 and the 86th Legislature in 2019, we need you to become a part of the conversation as TRA rolls out new strategic initiatives that will move the retail industry forward.

Our goal is continuing to provide value the Texas Retail community, and move it forward as we evolve, innovate and grow as an industry. We are the voice of Texas Retailers and we hope to see you at our next event!
