The AGM is an important part of this evening for our membership. Please join us to celebrate our successes over the past year and share our plans for the future.
In 2021, the Chapter reached a significant milestone of 15 years. Thanks to all members, volunteers, sponsors, community partners, and especially the hard work of the Board, the Chapter has accomplished a lot in many areas this year.
I look forward to seeing you at the AGM to share our accomplishments and vision for continuing success in bringing values to members and the business analysis community.
To align with IIBA Global membership harmonization, the Board of Directors is recommending the proposed amendments to the current Chapter Bylaws. The major changes are highlighted in yellow in the revised Bylaws document.
