State Associations & Leadership

Join your State Association

APRO encourages all our members to join their state rent-to-own associations.

State associations played a key role in developing positive state laws that protect and promote a safe, legal business environment for rent-to-own. Every year, state legislatures propose more than 25 bills that directly affect the RTO transaction. Strong state associations are necessary to help monitor these potential threats and help educate their state lawmakers about the benefits of our industry.

Many state organizations host meetings throughout the year. These meetings offer:

  • Opportunities to network with neighboring rental dealers and their associates, and
  • Education to members about current industry issues.

For more information visit the State Association Websites or State Rental Dealer Association Presidents section below. Check the calendar for upcoming industry events.

Contact APRO for more information on state associations by emailing stateservices@rtohq.org or calling us at (800) 204-2776.
