EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS AND SOLUTIONS FOR CRA MEMBERS THROUGH THE HOSPITALITY ASSOCIATIONS ALLIANCE PROGRAM

The Colorado Restaurant Association is part of a strategic alliance program to help address the diverse needs of the hospitality industry. The Hospitality Associations Alliance, a strategic alliance platform created by the National Restaurant Association and UnitedHealth Group, offers exclusive discounts and solutions that benefit CRA members and their employees.

 

This alliance program provides access to more affordable health care solutions, promotes and supports health and wellness in the hospitality industry, and helps members navigate state and federal compliance areas. There are several members-only offerings from industry-leading organizations, including UnitedHealthcare, Optum and DigiPro Media. Take a look on our website.

MORE FEEDBACK FROM THE COLORADO RESTAURANT SHOW

I guess we gave them something to talk about! We’ve been seeing mentions of the show all over social media and in conversations around the state. Take a look at what’s being said:

 

+ We got some good photos of the speakers and show floor, check our Facebook page.

+ Our friends at Root PR took some studious notes and made a great blog post

+ Our friends at The Modern Eater had their camera on hand. Take a look at videos on the Sustainability of the Foodservice Professional, Help them Help You Media panel, and from the show floor.


FROM THE BLOG: Listen Up: The Lowdown On Hearing Conservation Programs

Is noise at work a problem? You bet. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 22 million Americans are exposed to hazardous noise levels at work, and the Department of Labor says $242 million is spent each year on workers’ compensation for hearing loss disability. If excessive noise is a problem at your organization, Pinnacol can help. Read more about it on our blog.
