"Bluegrass IIBA Chapter is offering a 50% discount on chapter membership for a limited time", announced Diane Teague, Vice President of Membership. She added "the chapter is doing very well because of a great professional development program and membership numbers are higher than anticipated; the Board decided to give back to the community by reducing the price of membership to make it more available for everyone."
Aaron Whittenberger, Vice President of Professional Development noted that the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter study groups have been increasing the number of students they attract for the past five years, including students from countries outside of North America. "In 2019, we added an Agile Analysis Study Group; in 2020, we ran three BABOK study groups, each with increased registrations; and in 2021, we added a Business Data Analytics Study Group." Bluegrass IIBA Chapter has truly become the "training chapter" for IIBA. Aaron also noted that "we added three BA career courses this year designed to support the BA throughout their career from novice to the senior professional." He added, "the BA Fundamentals (BA101) class begins in February and already has 16 students registered."
Chapter President, Kathy Leigh, said "with our charter sponsor, The Solarity Group, renewing their support of our programs for the seventh year in a row, and having a Premier sponsor in SoftEd; we felt that this will be another great year for the chapter." She added "we wanted more people to be able to take advantage of our professional development program and be active with our chapter, we felt the best way to accomplish those goals is to reduce the price of membership."
Chapter membership does still require membership in the chapter's parent association, the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) (www.iiba.org). Once you join IIBA, you may join Bluegrass IIBA Chapter for $18 per year. This limited time offer may be ended without notice.
