IIBA® Chapters advance the mission and objectives of the organization by promoting professional standards and practices at the local level. Ongoing professional development is a key benefit of your IIBA® membership and is supported at the chapter level through activities, meetings, and educational programs.
Joining IIBA® shows your commitment to high performance and excellence in the area of business analysis. When you join an IIBA® chapter, you can get even more from your IIBA® membership.
IIBA chapters are being formed in many cities in Canada, the U.S. and around the world. We encourage our members to initiate chapters in their areas to enable networking with fellow BAs from a wide variety of organizations and industries, in a local, face-to-face setting.
Select a region from the Chapters menu at the left and then choose a Chapter for more details about that specific Chapter.

Become an IIBA Chapter Sponsor
As a way to help launch new chapters, IIBA® implemented a Premier Chapter Sponsorship program. One organization is selected annually by the Chapter Board of Directors as their sponsor. This sponsor provides funds and/or facilities for the chapter, such as space and refreshments for meetings, administration costs, etc. Each chapter signs an agreement with the Premier Sponsor defining the sponsorship fees and responsibilities of the sponsor and the chapter.
The sponsorship fee stays with the local IIBA chapter, helping them to provide information and networking opportunities to business analysts in the area. In return, the Premier Sponsor is listed on the chapter’s web page with the company logo.
As an IIBA Chapter Sponsor, your organization will have the following benefits:
Community visibility as the IIBA Chapter Sponsor
Exposure on the IIBA® website as the Chapter Sponsor
Recognition on marketing materials and newsletters provide by the Chapter
Recognition at the Chapter meetings
If you are interested in becoming an IIBA Chapter Sponsor, please contact your local chapter representative.
IIBA Chapter Patron
If you are not able to provide full sponsorship for a chapter, you may still help by being an IIBA Chapter Patron. Patrons provide individual contributions, either monetary or in-kind, to defray specific expenses, such as printing or advertising. In return, the Patron's company name and logo will be identified on such donations.
To become an IIBA Chapter Patron, contact your local chapter representative.
