Welcome to RBA!
RBA unites retired military, active duty, and civilian business owners throughout the United States. We began in 1994 when a group of retired military officers came together monthly to network and build their businesses.

Over the past 20 years, our members have grown organizations that reached $100 million in revenues, bought and sold businesses, started a bank, and contracted with Fortune 500 companies.

We encourage active military, civilian business owners, and community leaders to join us.
