Richmond's LGBT-Friendly Chamber of Commerce

The Richmond Business Alliance (RBA) supports businesses and professionals affirming to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community by increasing visibility, offering networking opportunities, and promoting economic success.

Become a member today.

The RBA is an organization dedicated to cultivating professional relationships, enhancing economic and educational opportunities, and fostering a sense of community among working professionals in both the private and public sectors throughout the greater Richmond, Virginia area.

A program of the Gay Community Center of Richmond, the RBA attempts to effectively incorporate the commercial, economic and professional interests of the LGBT community with those of the greater Richmond business community at large. As a result, the RBA provides a much-needed an outlet where individuals and organizations from across various sectors of the business community come together to experience unique commercial, educational, networking and social programming opportunities.
