About Our Chapter

The Southeast Michigan Chapter of the IIBA started November 2005 with a small contingent of business analysts who were interested in seeing the profession of Business Analysis grow in the Metro Detroit area.  We were officially recognized as a chapter of the IIBA in June of 2006.

From September through June we meet monthly at various host locations to provide our members with the latest information about the process, role or future outlook of the BA world from keynote speakers.  In addition, we offer educational webinars, Professional Development Day weekend workshops, and BABOK study groups to help prepare you for the certification exam.   All IIBA members and potential members are welcome.  Please take a look at our Events page for upcoming meeting topics and information.  Below is a typical meeting agenda:
