Buying Programs & Resources

Improve your bottom line with ICBA Programs & Resources

The ICBA Programs & Resources maintain and enhance direct buyer-vendor connections. Store buyers meet with, order, take receipt, pay and work directly with the vendor. The goal is to improve this relationship, not to obstruct it.
