RIA Regional Focus Group Networking Events

Network with Fellow Restorers

The RIA is excited to announce our newly formed, free, regional focus group networking events. Join fellow restorers in your region to network, hear about what the RIA AGA Committee is doing on behalf of restorers and provide feedback on the challenges and issues impacting your business. These new regional focus group networking events are designed to bring restorers together and include the following activities:

  • Facility Tour
  • Networking
  • AGA Updates & Feedback
  • Business Education

Each region is led by volunteer focus group chairs who help facilitate each networking event and can serve as an additional RIA resource.
