BEA Mission Statement

“The objectives of the Buffalo Executives Association shall be to institute and maintain a method of exchanging and interchanging business information among its members; to create and encourage cooperation, business efficiency and service to its members; to bring its members in touch with business opportunities; and to promote a better acquaintance and closer association among its members.”

BEA Business Success

We are a relationship building organization – not a tip club. We seek to increase sales on behalf of our business members over the long term by forging and nourishing personal relationships between the business owners. This is not an Association where your ROI will be met in a traditional sense, but should be evaluated over a period of several years. We require a commitment to attend weekly meetings and the ability to be an active participant in our group.
