Rockland Business Association

The RBA – Who We Are Today

The Rockland Business Association (RBA) was founded August 31, 1967, by a group of 40 local business leaders concerned with assisting the county in its growth, both as a business community and in its cultural and social programs.

The need for the organization's involvement has intensified over the years as the county has grown from a parochial, semi-rural community into a critically important regional partner. In fact, today the RBA is the most regional of all similar associations in the Hudson Valley, with 24 per cent of its members coming from outside of Rockland.
