FAQ'S ABOUT THE RBA

The RBA exists for the Greater Parkersburg / Marietta area. We strengthen the Business Community by giving people a chance to take a "Deep-Dive" into each other's businesses in a short amount of time. 

1

What is extreme networking?

These are "Evening Meetings" that are held in the spirit of speed dating. You have 3 minutes to tell the person across the table about who you are & what your business is all about. This is a great way for people to connect in a timely manner that guarantee's at least 10 business contacts per meeting.  

2

What is an opportunity meeting?

We share news of the Mid Ohio Valley. Whether it be a new business openings, government contracts that are available, or any other such opportunities. These are always lunch meetings, where we will gather at a venue for 45 - 60 minutes and have a speaker inform us on all details.

HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?

Memberships start at $30 a month or $300 a year. 

4

Do I have to be a member to attend?

You must be a member to participate. However, you can attend two meetings as a "Try us on for size" experience to see if we are a good fit. Simply go to our membership page & sign up for a free trial.

Are you able to cancel a membership?

You can Opt=Out with a 30 day written request.

Who attends these meetings?

This group was specifically formed to help businesses connect in the Mid Ohio Valley. So we encourage all business leaders & decision makers to attend.

How is this different than a Chamber?

A Chamber is great for social networking. The RBA is structured in a way that guarantees that you meet at least 10 business contacts. We provide extreme networking which encourages leaders to have 1 on 1 contact in a timely manner.

What benefits do I get in a month?

You have access to an opportunity meeting (Local Business News), you have access to our Extreme Networking (1 on 1 meets) and you have access to our business discounts.

What should I bring to meetings?

It is a must that you bring a business card, and that you have your "elevator speech" which is your business overview prepared.
