Your Success Is Our Business

Let KRHA be YOUR voice!

The annual KRHA Legislative Affairs conference is a great opportunity for our members to join the conversation about upcoming legislative issues and how it will impact business in Kansas.  You don't need to create the legislation.  All you need to do is speak up about a particular issue affecting your business and our lobbyists will take care of the rest.  


Learn how these issues will have a direct economic impact on your operation.  We will highlight these issues and provide talking points to those that would like to carry the message to their elected officials.  This is a great way to get involved, even for those that are new to the legislative scene.  



  • Attend the KRHA conference to share your first-hand knowledge of issues impacting your operation and hear the 2019 legislative agenda.  
  • Donate as a food vendor at "A Taste of Kansas" luncheon - Operators have the opportunity to highlight their restaurant to approximately 500 legislators and their staff members.  Vendors are asked to provide samplings of a menu item for 350 individuals.  
  • Greet Kansas Legislators and state officials at the luncheon.
  • Join us for the day on the hill discussions and Capitol visits.
