In times like these, we all have to work together.
Join Our Open Membership Today, At No Cost
To build solidarity across the sector, the retail business leaders on RMA’s board have voted to open membership to all local retail businesses at no cost for the next six months. We invite all retail business owners to join RMA’s existing members who are already participating in Retail Relief 2020, an initiative that supports our members with information, support, and advocacy.
