Your association provides educational resources, industry research, the ability to have your voice heard in the industry and opportunities to engage with other independent retailers and channel partners, including the following:

Employee Training

NRHA provides all retailers access to multiple training resources, including its Train the Trainer Guide, Trainer’s Toolbox, in-depth online programs and many downloadable resources on topics like merchandising, selling skills, operations and more.

Industry Research

NRHA is committed to conducting proprietary research to keep retailers informed on the state of the industry and provide the data they need to be successful. The association firmly believe that retailer voices are most important, and utilizes its members to gather metrics and opinions through the NRHA Retailer Research Panel.

Industry Events

NRHA hosts several events throughout the year, and many of them are free for retailers to attend. Stay tuned for information on the 2017 State of Independents Conference, 2018 NRHA All-Industry Conference or one of NRHA’s many roundtable events.
