RRBA is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose mission is to establish and carry out a strategy for the development, use, preservation and enhancement of the resources of the Roanoke River basin in the best interest of present and future generations of Basin residents. RRBA believes that basin resource conservation can co-exist with managed economic growth.
The Roanoke River basin contains 9,580 square miles and over 400 miles of rivers, stretching from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia in an east-southeast direction to the Albemarle Sound near Plymouth, North Carolina.
RRBA consists of an all-volunteer citizen appointed Advisory Board of Directors, and an Executive Director reporting to an Executive Committee. The Committee is made up of the Officers of President, Vice President, and Secretary/Treasurer, appointed Board members representing the upper, middle, Kerr Lake, and lower Basin areas and an Advisor on Legislative and Regulatory Affairs.
