The Council of State Retail Associations (CSRA) was organized to improve and advance the retail industry through close cooperation and mutual assistance among state retail association executives. This is accomplished through the exchange of general and technical information on issues of importance to the associations and the members they represent. CSRA acts as a forum for discussion of important issues of primary concern on state legislation and regulations affecting the retail industry. CSRA also offers best professional practices for state retail association management. CSRA helps state retail associations better serve their members.
