Biographical history

The Australian Retailers' Association was formed in 1974 by major retailers and various state retail associations in an effort to improve the image of the Australian Council of Retailers (formed in 1940). In 1989 the name was changed to the Retail Traders Associations of Australia and in 1991 it was changed to the Retail Council of Australia (RCA). Further amalgamations took place in 1998 to restructure the organisation into a national body under the the Australian Retailers Association.
