The Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR) has pledged to continue its rapid growth of membership in 2013 following a year in which the organisation increased its number of member operators by a quarter. 

Speaking at the ALMR AGM, chairman Steve Richards praised outgoing chief executive Nick Bish and welcomed David McHattie to the position.​ Richards also revealed the organisation's revenues were up by 50 per cent and said the growth would be used to increase its campaigning on a range of core issues.

"The ALMR has seen sustained growth in numbers, revenue and reputation year on year and, in our 21st year; we have really come of age," he said

"We have used that strength and depth of membership giving us ever greater success in campaigning on the issues that matter most to operators’ bottom line – on tax, on employment, on planning and licensing. We are at the forefront of resisting the worst excesses at local and national level and promoting the positive benefits our sector brings," Richards added.

During 2012, the ALMR welcomed a number of new, high-profile members including Mitchells & Butlers, Luminar, Loungers and Draft House.
