Benefits of Membership

The primary benefit of membership in NPA East is advocacy. By building a network of active members throughout the region, we champion the rights of retailers at the statehouses, keeping watchful eyes on legislation that could harm our industry and prevent our members’ right to do business. We also encourage legislation that supports the goals and objectives of the industry. No other organization provides this critical service to the retailers and suppliers that reside in the East region.

By promoting activities and events like Natural Products Lobbying Day, and Expo East, NPA East provides many networking opportunities for members throughout the year. These are excellent ways for our members to discuss pressing issues and to obtain and receive advice on everything from finding reliable suppliers to developing cost-effective marketing campaigns.

Through an agreement with a nationally respected credit card processing agency, the NPA East Bank Card Service  provides members with access to a program that could save them hundreds and even thousands of dollars annually on your processing fees.

NPA East also employs a full-time Executive Director who is available to help you make the most of your membership in NPA East on a daily basis.
