Skip to content Accelerating Opportunities
This month, we look forward with great anticipation of what is ahead over the coming months. In this issue we focus on the theme “accelerating opportunities” which looks at how BA community collaboration and knowledge sharing continues to drive growth and greater connectivity. 
I am pleased to share our new alliance announcement with ASPE, SDLC a division of Fortis College that will offer even more opportunities for engagement and collaboration. What is different about this alliance is that ASPE is an education provider. After careful research and evaluation, International Institute of Business Analysis™ (IIBA®) determined there would be many benefits for our Members from this relationship. The agreement marks the 5th alliance with a complementary association or organization which increases our global reach to an extended network. Be sure to read more in this month’s newsletter. We understand that you may have questions about all of our new strategic alliances that we have announced, and we would like to invite you to attend an upcoming webinar focused on providing you with additional information. Join us on February 16 at 10:00am EST to directly ask your questions.
In 2016, we remain focused on delivering more educational and learning opportunities. Our new webinar series will offer expert led sessions on a variety of competencies and key issues impacting the BA profession. The areas of focus will be relevant and topical subject matters for BAs to explore and learn more about to help them in their career and their daily work. We look forward to your participation in one of our upcoming webinars. 
Our IT team will migrate IIBA® to a new association management software platform that will help IIBA better support our Members needs and enhance our responsiveness to deliver a more positive customer service experience. 

Be sure to read the latest update from our certification team as they continue to work towards the development of the new competency-based certification program. 
Take a look at this month’s newsletter for more details on these initiatives and much more. Happy reading!
