Montana Retail welcomes you to the Montana Associations Home Page!

The Montana Retail Association (MRA) is a vibrant, professional trade group dedicated to being the voice of retailers in the Montana Legislature, and through our affiliated national associations, in Washington, DC.  Since 1964 the MRA has played an important role to retailers by providing a full-time registered lobbyist who advocates for you by giving expert testimony and lobbying the Montana Legislature on issues that are important to the retail industry.

The Association Office represents four Montana industry groups:

  • Montana Retail Association
  • Montana Restaurant Association 
  • Montana Restaurant Association Education Foundation
  • Montana Tire Dealers Advisory Council 
  • Montana Equipment Dealers Association

In addition to Legislative Representation, your association membership also provides other benefits that can save your business significant sums of money.  You can improve your bottom line by participating in our payment processing program that includes custom gift card and loyalty options.   Worker’s Comp, business liability and casualty insurances, as well as payroll and other office services are also available.  Another resource is the many national association groups that represent you in Washington, DC.

We invite you to visit the home page for your industry under the ‘Associations’ tab above.
