Advocacy

The RIA is committed to helping our members remain competitive in today’s digital world. We are currently the ONLY organization that actively promotes and supports the specialty running channel.

Our advocacy focuses primarily on:

  • Political Lobbying - On a macro level, we are part of a larger group that lobbies Congress on behalf of independent local retailers.
  • Brand Protection = Specialty Retail Protection. When brands work hard to protect their product integrity, the running specialty channel benefits as well. The RIA works closely with the brand community to help educate decision-makers on topics like MAP, internet sales and brand protection policies.
