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. Our staff of experts translate difficulty into opportunity for our association membership. We host a series of networking opportunities during the course of the year that allows our members to meet and network with the leadership of these diverse organizations. We also provide advice, research and operational information that is critical to driving successful business opportunities. There is no company too large or too small; there is no opportunity we will not explore. Membership is easy and the results will be a solid return on your investment.
