Grassroots Network gives members a voice
We’re quite proud of the WRA’s sophisticated and effective grassroots network, but it wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our members.
The WRA depends on working collaboratively with members on the front lines of our government affairs efforts. Allowing our legislators to hear directly from business owners in this industry is one of the most effective tools we have in protecting the hospitality sector.
Our grassroots network is made up of members representing all aspects of the industry, all willing to make a minimal time commitment for the good of restaurateurs in Washington. Grassroots volunteers vary in time commitment and duties, ranging from a grassroots Ambassador to a grassroots phone contact.
While our lobby team works closely with state legislators and agencies throughout the year, it is crucial to remind our elected officials who we represent: real people and real business operators. Nothing is more effective than putting a constituent before an elected official and allowing a dialogue to take place.
