To meet the increasing demands and need for technology throughout the restaurant industry, the Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) has formed a partnership with the International Food and Beverage Technology Association (IFBTA). In doing so, the IFBTA is giving the gift of membership to TRA operator members who are interested in the IFBTA and our technology-related initiatives.

The primary benefit of the TRA/IFBTA partnership is an individual co-membership for all TRA member organizations. This benefit provides TRA members the opportunity to attend IFBTA chapter meetings, networking events, and gives access to IFBTA educational materials and resources.

Through the co-membership program, TRA and IFBTA members can expect enhanced opportunities for their operations, as well as personal and professional growth.

An individual TRA member (per company) can receive one complementary membership to the IFBTA for a full calendar year. Membership benefits include:

  • Single Local Chapter/Virtual Membership
  • Quarterly Local Chapter Meetings
  • 10 Annual White Papers
  • One Certification Program Pass
  • IFBTA Events Nationwide
  • IFBTA Meetings-in-Meetings
  • Global Conference Calls & Webinars
Membership for TRA Supplier Members is also available. Suppliers have access to a 1-year Allied Membership of the IFBTA with member benefits that include:
  • Company Listing with Link on IFBTA Website
  • CFTP Certification Access
  • Access to 10 Annual White Papers, created by the IFBTA and distributed in the member portal
  • Limited Access to IFBTA Events Open to the Public

For those interested in adding any subsequent colleague(s) to the IFBTA membership, a 20% discount can be applied. We look forward to welcoming you to the IFBTA and thank you for being a supportive member of TRA.
