Community + Networking

Be connected

In the restaurant business, it's crucial to think local. To attract loyal customers, secure top-quality ingredients, size up competition, establish valuable vendor relationships and build community partnerships, operators must keep a finger on the pulse of their area, down to the neighborhood.

CRA Chapter Network

The CRA chapter network offers members the opportunity to network, sharing ideas and energy, with likeminded professionals. Each chapter provides advanced education, workshops, seminars and community-based action groups across California. Chapters work to support important political initiatives, local schools, charities and other worthwhile organizations.

Independently governed chapters are at work in Sacramento, San Diego County, Los Angeles, Orange County, Fresno and Central Valley. Operate in a region without a formal chapter? The CRA has you covered with statewide advocacy representation and events strategically focused on restaurant-rich areas, including Silicon Valley, the Bay Area and North State.
