Our committees are made up of experienced member restaurateurs. They meet roughly once a month and dicuss important topics relevant to the local restaurant industry.

The GHRA urges you to get active and be recognized for your commitment to the Association. Under the direction of this year’s president, we have some great ways for you to network with the membership, increase exposure of your business and have a great time while doing so.

Government Affairs Committee

The purpose of the Government Affairs Committee is to help strengthen our relationships within City Hall and to manage issues that impact the industry at both the local and state level. The committee will be asked to help devise plans and steps on how to achieve these goals. The committee will also be discussing local government relations, building relationships, and strategizing on how to unite and achieve our primary goals.

Education Committee

The Education Committee focuses on raising the level of excellence in the industry by better educating members, students and educators about the tools and services the Association can provide. Learn about culinary programs in area high schools, food safety courses, joining the Speakers Bureau or being a mentor to someone who is just starting out. This committee helps drive helpful communication to members and the community, and is the force behind quality programs and opportunities.

Member Value Committee

The Member Value Committee is the backbone committee focused on growing membership, engaging members and promoting the many benefits of the GHRA/TRA.This committee is key to supporting the association and helping members of our industry connect and participate.  They lay the foundation for member-to-member networking opportunities and offer a variety of exciting workshops, dinners, discussions and special events wherein members can meet and mingle. This committee creates platforms for members to increase exposure, recruits new membership and reinforces the benefits of the Association to existing members.
