The ALA is a modern, best practice trade association that has become industry’s "First Call" when dealing with the complex issues of navigating the military marketplace. The military channel comprised of military Commissaries (grocery stores), Exchanges (convenience stores, department stores, food concessions, gas stations, communications and electronics, wine, beer and spirits, ship’s stores, tactical retail outlets), Morale, Welfare and Recreation sales and services (restaurants, child care, fitness centers, libraries, auto service), Veteran’s Canteen Service (retail outlets in VA Hospitals and offices), constitutes a business environment with close to $20 Billion in annual sales. This marketplace is worldwide, world class and world of opportunity. Doing business with the government is at times a daunting task.
