Overview

Chapters are groups of members in a local geographic region who are self-organized and whose intention is to provide local value for themselves. Chapters represent the interests of their members. Successful chapters reflect the enthusiasm, participation and energy of their members. All Hartford chapter members must also be IIBA® International members.

If you are interested in the current issues and challenges facing business analysts; if you enjoy meeting with colleagues for friendship and knowledge sharing; if you value professional growth and discovering best practices in your chosen career, please join our chapter.

How to Become a Member
In order to join a local chapter, you must be a current member of IIBA at the International level. Becoming a member is easy, just follow these two steps:

1. Sign up for IIBA International membership. International membership is $125USD annually. Payment by credit card or check is accepted. You can pay online or through the mail. Once your payment is received and processed, you will receive an email confirming the receipt of your payment, your IIBA member number, and your payment expiration date.

2. Sign up for Local Chapter Membership
Annual membership for the Hartford Chapter is $20. Click on the link above or the enroll button below to pay using your credit card or PayPal account. You can also attend a local chapter meeting and pay the dues via cash or check.

 

Your local dues will be good for the remainder of the chapter year you sign up for. Chapter years run from September - August. Dues are not pro-rated, so if you join after September, the membership fee is still $20. Note: your International membership must remain active in order for you to obtain the benefits of chapter membership.
