The Value of Membership

Advocacy. Communication. Education.

Our vision is clear, and our mission to protect the industry is genuine. With greater membership, our voice in local and state government becomes even more powerful. Your membership in Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association (ORLA) is vital to strengthening the only organization in the state devoted to protecting and promoting the interests of the hospitality industry. There's no better time to be a part of the solution.

Membership in ORLA includes an array of benefits and services, all centered around advocating for, communicating with, and training Oregon's restaurant and lodging establishments. From the State Capitol to our Nation's Capitol, ORLA provides a voice for our industry. Members can count on the ongoing efforts of our government affairs team to advocate for favorable laws and fair regulations, and to stop unfair taxes and anti-business legislation in its tracks.

All members receive print and electronic publications that inspire, inform and involve. We promote dining and staying in Oregon, and we get the word out about the impact and diversity of the hospitality industry. Lodging members are also afforded a complimentary featured listing on

Our resources and business-building tools are designed to make your life easier and your business stronger. From our cutting edge training and certification programs to our money saving members-only endorsed services, ORLA provides you opportunities for success.

As an added benefit, only members can access a multitude of resources in our Resources section of the website including compliance, sustainability, industry research and industry links.

Whether you're a restaurant, a lodging property, or a business that services and supplies the industry, you'll find value in your ORLA membership. Contact the ORLA office to learn more about the benefits of membership!

What Our Members Are Saying

"You can measure the savings you get in membership services, but you can’t put a price on the benefits the industry receives from the association’s efforts in tempering rules, regulations and laws that may negatively impact business.”
