Who are we?
RBEA is a themed community intended to engage rugby professionals to drive Strategy 2020 forward in a self-funding way, while also creating a forum for members to build business relationships. RBEA is formed in collaboration with USA Rugby but does not accept funding from the national office. 100% of our efforts and a portion of our proceeds are committed to USA Rugby.
Mission: To connect senior executives who exemplify rugby’s traditions of courage, commitment and passion. We offer a forum for them to renew their love of the game, network and share knowledge, promote and professionalize the sport and get involved locally to build robust regional rugby communities in support of USA Rugby's Strategy 2020 and the mission of our national governing body.
Vision: Economic and community development through rugby
We are entirely self-funding. 100% of our efforts and a portion of our proceeds are committed to USA Rugby in support the mission of our national governing body and the execution of Strategy 2020.
We support rather than competes with philanthropic rugby organizations among our membership by engaging new potential donors and by encouraging these organizations to host philanthropic events in tandem with our summits.
Why do we exist?
Perhaps U.S. rugby's greatest and most underutilized asset is our professional community. The Rugby Business Executives Association (RBEA) exists to turn this resource into a source of competitive advantage. This may by one of the few professional associations you will ever need.
