The myriad of problems facing the industry on local, state and national level are too complex for any one person to deal with alone. In numbers, we have strength and no one of us is as powerful as all of us. Ask about our Platinum Retailer program today.

We’ll send you a decal to display in your establishment, list your establishment’s name in the annual newsletter, and give special recognition at the annual meeting.
There are two ways you can lose the privilege to sell alcoholic beverages. One is to violate the laws under which the license was issued, and the second is to have that licensed pulled out from under you because the license has changed. It can happen. It did once, because no strong national or state association existed to fight the temperance movement. NLBA exists to protect retailers.
Through the NLBA newsletter, annual meeting and legislative updates, NLBA places strong emphasis on educating its members on current legislation and happenings at the state government level. Ignorance is not bliss.
There is no question that individual licensed beverage dealers must work together through an association to accomplish common goals. Joined together the licensed beverage retailer can maintain an effective voice in the legislature and regulatory bodies located in the nation and state capitols. Get to know your colleagues and band together to protect your business. Help build the NLBA community by becoming a Platinum Retailer member and referring three new members.
