A network, a voice, and a rich source of business resources are ingredients for success in the lodging and restaurant business. That’s why your Wyoming Lodging and Restaurant Association deserves your support & membership dollars. Joining, as a member is one of the best investments you can make!

Action & Advocacy

Local, state and federal government constantly dictates new rules and regulations that directly affect the way you conduct your business. They don’t understand you work day and night to keep your business running smoothly and if you violate any laws, you risk losing thousands of dollars in fines and penalties. Our team acts as your eyes, ears and voice to protect you.

Our initiatives have:

  • Saved you up to $6,000 per year on sales tax remittance with the new vendor's compensation bill.
  • Increased tourism funding to bring more business.
  • Stopped raises in the minimum wage for tipped employees.
  • Implemented a local option lodging tax.
  • Stopped harmful labor, worker's compensation and unemployment laws.

Your support is critical to effectively fight these initiatives!
