Why Apply for CRTRA Membership?
One of the services provided by CRTRA is to provide members with contacts within the restaurant industry to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information related to compensation and benefits.
All CRTRA members will have access to the roster of the current Association members, their addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
Additional networking opportunities are presented at the annual CRTRA conference; attendance is encouraged for all member companies.
Membership Application Process
Restaurant organizations who would like to be considered for CRTRA membership must submit an application for membership. Prospective members must meet the following requirements for approval:

They must operate (either through direct ownership or franchising) at least the following number of units:

Organizations who would like to apply for membership should contact the CRTRA Membership Director, Christina Harmon or President (phone and e-mail address can be found on the Officer Contact Page). You may also complete the membership application form. The application form will provide assistance in determining if you have a sufficient number of job matches to be eligible for membership consideration for CRTRA.
The membership application outlines the position covered by the annual CRTRA Compensation Survey. Please indicate which of the positions you are able to match within your own organization and submit electronically, or if you prefer, please fax or e-mail your completed application to the CRTRA President or Past President. At that time, you may also request a copy of the most recent annual conference agenda and a listing of the previous compensation survey participants.
If approved for membership by the Executive Committee, your first year cost will include the annual membership fees and you will have the opportunity to participate in the CRTRA survey. If you join after the survey cycle, the survey results can be purchased a 1.5 times the cost of participating organizations.
As a member, you will receive an address and contact listing of all other member companies for networking purposes, the option to participate in the Association's annual Benefits Survey , the annual Total Remuneration Survey and two spot surveys per year.
