IIBA Connections

If there is no IIBA Chapter in your area, IIBA Connections acts as your Chapter in your IIBA Profile until you choose a Chapter to be associated with or a Chapter opens in your area. 


Although IIBA Members can access every chapter in the world, they are affiliated with only one in their profile—think of it as your home base! This is typically the chapter they interact with most, but it can be changed at any time.

When you join IIBA, you can choose your chapter affiliation. If you don’t, you’re assigned one near you. If there isn’t one near you, you’re assigned to IIBA’s Connections. 

IIBA Connections acts as a placeholder in your IIBA Profile until you choose an existing Chapter to be associated with or a Chapter opens in your area. 

Join Events and Use Resources from Different Chapters

Members are welcome to interact with any IIBA Chapter, no matter which one they’re assigned to. Sign into any Chapter website using your login to access Chapter-specific news, events, and resources. 

“IIBA connects me to the Business Analysis Community. I have a place to ask questions while getting the opportunity to practice and grow my skills.”
