Restaurant and Lodging Partnership
The Greater Charleston Restaurant Association, Charleston Area Hospitality Association
and South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association
have created a unique partnership to promote, protect and improve businesses in the tri-county area.
Through this joining of forces, restaurant membership in the Greater Charleston Restaurant Association and lodging members of the Charleston Area Hospitality Association includes membership into the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association and for restaurants the National Restaurant Association. Membership to these organizations will deliver added value to your business and increase our local hospitality industry’s lobbying power at the local, state and national levels.
We invite you to join this year to participate in the many programs provided by our Associations.
Please contact Andy Rankin for membership information
