Member Benefits

The RIA focuses on creating value for our members through a variety of platforms.  Our members enjoy money saving discounts that return membership dues many times over, educational opportunities, peer connections, advocacy, market data, and much more. 

RIA Brand Showcase

The RIA Brand Showcase helps you find the information you need to make informed buying decisions, as well as brand marketing assets and technical information for staff training. In short, the RIA Brand Showcase is a channel-wide resource that will make connecting you with your brand partners easier than ever before.

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.
