Representing the Best Interests of Illinois' Restaurant Industry

A major focus of the Illinois Restaurant Assocation's mission is advocacy. With a strong network of restaurant operator and supplier members, the IRA's leaders and professional lobbyists monitor critical legislative issues and represent the best interests of Illinois' restaurant industry at the local, state, and federal levels.
