RCA Regional Hubs

RCA hosts 12 Regional Hubs that strive to provide members with opportunities to connect and become engaged at a local level through networking events, educational seminars, philanthropy activities and more.



RCA Regions were designed to best serve the areas where our members work, travel and live. RCA members now have more opportunities to connect and become engaged at a local level. Whether you’re traveling for an industry conference or serving a new territory, RCA Regional Hubs welcome you at any time, from anywhere.
