A non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the buying power of its members.


Our association is comprised primarily of three types of membership.

  • Associate Members or vendors, who provide benefits to the RARES membership
  • General Members who are the businesses that join to obtain and offer these same benefits voluntarily to their employees. Once a company is approved for memberships, any employee may voluntarily become a member of RARES by accepting our membership card.
  • Individual/Family Memberships are available as well to those individuals whose companies don't belong to RARES.

An investment in RARES is an investment in your professional development, your business, and your employees. It's one of the least expensive and most important investments you can make.

Applications for membership are available below.

It is the goal of RARES to utilize its collective "buying power" to maximize the savings available to its Members. Associate Members (also referred to as Vendors) agree to offer RARES Members a discount on their goods or services which is greater than the price offered to the general public. In return, Associate Members who take advantage of our Membership network receive a very attractive marketing opportunity and potential return on their investment.

Please note that RARES accepts NO outside advertising. Any promotions on this web site are placed by and for the benefit of our Members only.

RARES is an extremely effective, low-cost method for reaching thousands of individuals in the Rochester area with information about your product or service. In 2018, Associate Membership in RARES is available for just $260 annually. The price remains the same as in 2017. Where else can you reach tens of thousands of individuals on a regular basis with information about your products or services for just a few hundred dollars?
