Associate Membership

RIA Associate members are essentially our strategic partners, and membership is by invitation-only. New Associate members join the RIA on the basis of providing some manner of exclusive service or discount to our retail members, our brand members, or both.  In return, the RIA provides several benefits to our Associate members to ensure that the partnership creates a return on the investment. 

Brand Visibility - Sponsor Opportunities

As a member, you have the opportunity to get exposure to over 300 specialty run retailers across the country through sponsoring various RIA activities and events (professional development summits and training seminars).
Our goal is to create a tangible return on investment by:
  1. Understanding a potential sponsor’s goals;
  2. Customizing  opportunities with affordable packages to help sponsors realize those goals and;
  3. Providing sponsors with feedback and data that defines the ROI as closely as possible.

Access Retailers

The RIA website is designed to provide you with improved access to our retail members, and more importantly, allow them improved access to you.
  • Brand Member Website Listing
    All brand member websites are listed on the RIA site. Note: The RIA encourages brand and associate members to link this URL to a retailer landing page or a special portal for retailers. This is not required of course, but it’s a great way to connect with our retail members with targeted messaging or ordering platforms.
  • Retail Member Listing
    All retail members are listed on our retail member directory page.
  • Member Database
    The RIA provides detailed contact information upon request.

Think Tank

The RIA Think Tank is a member-only forum that enables peer-sharing on relevant topics, as well as access to information from fellow members.

Professional Development

The RIA will continue to support their members to be the best they can possibly be at what they do. We are working with associate members to bring digital opportunities to you, while we plan for in-person training and summits that will hopefully be appropriate in 2021.
