Vital Relationship Building
The SFATA VA chapter is dedicated to fostering relationships with other state trade associations in order to further our footing in the retail space. This has begun with the Virginia Retail Merchants Association. These relationships allow us to the same access to legislators that large established businesses maintain. It is also allowing other business owners to understand the harm reduction aspect of our industry.
