Retail Industry Leaders Association
The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) is best defined by the companies we represent America’s leading retailers. RILA proudly counts nine of the top 10 U.S. retailers as members. RILA members also hold the top spot among key retail segments including apparel, consumer electronics, department stores, home improvement, large format and small format, demonstrating that RILA is truly the association for ‘retail leaders.’ In fact, no trade association represents more top retailers than RILA.
The highly sophisticated companies among RILA’s members are experts at reading and responding to consumer demands. The retail executives that lead these companies join RILA to collaborate with their peers to seek excellence within their own enterprise and pursue positive changes for the industry at large.
As the retail industry’s advocate in Washington DC, RILA is a trusted source dedicated to telling the retail industry’s story and informing lawmakers of the impact and consequences of the decisions they make. On the retail operations side, RILA provides a forum where members can conduct discussions aimed at understanding common operational practices, areas of concern, and pragmatic solutions to problems. Our educational events are second to none. RILA is structured to focus on five core areas where retailers can collaborate to make a difference.
- Supply Chain
- Asset Protection
- Human Resources
- Enterprise Issues (Sustainability, Privacy)
