The RGCA is comprised of national and regional companies operating in the close-loop industry. Member companies include—but are not limited to—retailers, restaurants, travel and entertainment brands, card manufacturers, solution providers, distributors, and digital providers. Through the RGCA, members can band together to provide a unified voice for the industry so that we can more effectively advocate for policies that protect retailers and consumers.
