About Us

BEA Is About Building Business Relationships


The Buffalo Executives Association was founded in 1935. Although the Buffalo-area business environment has changed dramatically since that time, the BEA has maintained its premier business networking reputation. We believe that our ongoing success is based upon our solid Mission Statement and the fact that our focus and our charter has remained unchanged, and intact, for over 80 years.


We believe that BEA’s outstanding success as an executive business networking organization is, in large part, due to the dedication of our member businesses to work with and support each other in building ongoing business and social relationships:

  • BEA Membership is a prized privilege – close communication and scrutiny are utilized to determine a prospective members’ eligibility to join our organization
  • All BEA Members are expected to actively participate in organizational activities and to demonstrate an exuberance and appreciation for BEA and its members with ongoing proactive involvement
