The Richmond Association for Business Economics (RABE) is a non-profit, non-partisan professional association that provides educational and networking opportunities for individuals interested in economics and its application to public policy. We are registered with the IRS as a 501(c)3 educational organization.
Our association was founded in 1984, to bring together individuals from all areas of business throughout the metro Richmond area. RABE members come from many professions, including business economics, real estate, university education, central banking, state and local government, and financial consulting.
We hold Economic Issues luncheons and other events eight to ten times each year. At these events, we discuss issues of common interest, share experiences and ideas, highlight the contributions that business economists can make in the workplace, and to promote research and further study of economic issues, as they relate to public policy.
