Keeping our members informed is an important aspect of our responsibilities as an Association. There are several ways we keep our members up to date on our activities, and the issues of which they need to be aware.
- Since 1899, SDRA has been publishing a newsletter to keep our members up-to-date on retail issues and trends, and on laws and regulations. The Retail Prophet is now published monthly (with the exception of February and March). The newsletter supplies answers to questions asked by retailers, and provides monthly taxable sales reports, as well as keeping you informed on retail issues. Members of our Hospitality Division also receive an insert in each month's newsletter, with information focusing on hospitality issues.
- During the State Legislative Session in January and February, we publish a weekly Legislative Bulletin with details about retail-related legislation.
- We publish an annual Legislative Lineup, with photos of legislators, legislative schedules, and useful information about the legislative process.
We publish an Annual Report, highlighting key activities of the Association. The report is presented to members who attend the Annual Meeting in January.
