Board of Directors

The Board of Directors for both WRA and its Education Foundation are comprised of industry authorities armed with solid experience in foodservice operations. These elected individuals operate different types and sizes of establishments from around the state, bringing their unique perspectives to the table.

The WRA Directors meet quarterly to fulfill the WRA mission of advocacy, education and communication for the foodservice industry and to ensure that the policies of the organization meet the needs of members. The EF Directors gather semi-annually to satisfy the EF vision to advance professionalism through education, scholarships and community involvement to ensure the future success of the foodservice industry.
