Community Engagement

Learning directly from peers, sharing challenges, and hearing from experts is perhaps the most efficient way to keep up to date with regulatory and environmental changes, industry trends, and innovative approaches. RILA and the RCC provide a number of ways for retail professionals to connect and share. These include committees and networks, webinars, and meetings. While the areas covered are broad and encompass a variety of environmental regulatory and sustainability topics, they are all retail-focused.
