Rotterdam Business Association

The Rotterdam Business Association was founded in 1998. The purpose for Rotterdam Business Association is for local businesses to work together to exchange ideas and services in order to provide their members with benefits and opportunities.

The RBA mission statement is to be the voice to the Rotterdam Community dedicated to advocating for 1800+ local businesses. Rotterdam is a beautiful suburb with 28,000 residents that is in a growth mode. The philosophy is professional development through community involvement, networking and utilize each other’s services or products.

Some past events sponsored by Rotterdam Business Association are Meet the Candidate Night and Rotterdam Community Day as well as sponsorships to Rotterdam Little League, Carmen Little League and Boys and Girls Club.

Rotterdam is very proud to partner with the Schenectady Chamber of Commerce offering members educational seminars and share common goal of forming solid business relationships. RBA also believes in utilizing their resources working with other business associations advocating for members of the community.

"I have been a member of Rotterdam Business Association for 12 years. As with any volunteer association we have had our share of peaks and valleys. Our focus for 2014 is twofold 1) To grow in membership and 2) Conduct business seminars and guest speakers that will help either a new startup company or help an established business grow. The association has a diverse group of business types that can help and support each other. Our motto: Rotterdam is a nice place to do business!"
