Membership Discounts & Benefits
Welcome To NMRA
We are YOUR professional organization. Are you frustrated putting out fires (sometimes literally) on a daily basis? Wondering where the next emergency will come from, someone calling in sick or quitting just as you get them trained? Well the New Mexico Restaurant Association (NMRA) is ready to help you put systems in place so you can sleep at night and be on your way to having the successful business you always dreamed you would have.
You will also be relieved to know, as a member, you have a voice in government. Legislators and regulators consistently consult us. We protect our industry from particularly troublesome laws with a professional staff of qualified lobbyists. As a member of NMRA you are automatically a member of the National Restaurant Association and receive all of their benefits as well.
