Skip to content My IIBA Chapters August Letter from Jared


New Chapters this Month

Our global community is expanding as we welcome the communities of Trivandrum (India) and Bosnia & Herzegovina! Thank you to the Board of Director and committee members who have worked tirelessly to bring their Chapters to official IIBA charter status. Congratulations Trivandrum and Bosnia & Herzegovina Chapters…welcome to the IIBA Family!

Chapter Anniversaries

Our Chapter in Victoria, BC, Canada is celebrating 10 years as an official Chapter. I had the opportunity to visit them just before the pandemic and could feel the vibrant energy of a thriving community. 

In Europe, our Germany Chapter is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month. In the past five years, they have introduced an amazing conference that further helps to engage their community.

Congratulations Victoria and Germany!

Collaboration Calls

The Wednesday collaboration calls (or perhaps even Thursday in your time zone) continue to be a success! In response to popular demand, the calls have now been extended to the end of September! Feel free to join whenever it's convenient for you.

BBC Goes Virtual

In direct response to the pandemic, the annual Building Business Capability conference will go ahead as a virtual conference from October 19-23rd. Going virtual allows you to attend BBC from the comfort of your home, local coffee shop, or wherever you are situated. It also means ticket prices have been reduced to reflect the new setting.

There are two options you can purchase for BBC 2020:

  1. attend each session live (Livestresm)
  2. attend live and access the recordings of all sessions until the end of the year (Livestream and Recordings)

If you purchased a ticket prior to the decision to go virtual, you will receive a complimentary ticket for BBC 2021 in addition to your ticket to BBC 2020's virtual event.

Virtual Leadership Day

We are excited about our virtual Leadership Day on October 20th. We are changing things up this year and the theme will be about moving your Board to a more strategic role. It will be a great day to collaborate and innovate with your follow leaders in business analysis. Make sure you register!

Volunteer of the Year 2020

You have until the end of August to nominate a worthy individual for Volunteer of the Year! We’re eager to go through all the nominations and pick the finalists!

During Regional and collaboration calls, we have heard some truly amazing stories about what Chapters have been doing this year, and look forward to choosing Chapter Award finalists!

Finalists for Volunteer of the Year and Chapter Awards will be announced at our Virtual Leadership Day in October!

With that, I will wish you the very best. Hope to see you on one of the upcoming collaboration calls!
