ARA members and non-members have a wealth of services available to them. This includes communications regarding important industry issues, opportunities to influence legislation, as well as educational and networking opportunities and more.
The Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) advocates, influences, educates and provides services to support its members in their quest to maintain a profitable business environment, adapt to a changing world and preserve their freedom to operate.
Work groups are topic-focused and provide expert opinion to ARA as needed on an ongoing basis. Task Forces are focused on a specific objective, with a finite lifespan that expires when the task is accomplished. The vast majority of this work is done via email and conference call, so there should be no scheduling conflicts with Committee meetings.
Current Task Forces and Work Groups Include:
- Fertilizer Contract Task Force
- Transportation Working Group
- Technology Working Group
- Tax / Finance Working Group
- Environmental Stewardship Working Group
- Security Working Group
- Biotechnology / Seed Working Group
