Call for Candidates - applications are being accepted from 1st July to 25 July 2014
During July-October, 2014 the International Institute of Business AnalysisTM (IIBA®) Australia Chapter will be holding elections for the six open Board positions.
IIBA® Australia Chapter will be soon accepting applications from IIBA® Australia Chapter members who would like to serve on the Chapter Board.
The term for each of the six Board positions is approximate two years. Interested candidates should be prepared to commit to managing a portfolio of work, attending a minimum of eight board meetings per year, a one day face to face Board meeting, plus any required meetings for work on Board committees.
The IIBA Australia Chapter Professional Days have been a huge success around the country, feedback from attendees has been encouraging with positive comments regarding the speakers, topics, panels and atmosphere generated at the venues.
The IIBA Australia Chapter would like to thank the Kevin Brennan, Roxanne Miller, Professional Day sponsors as well as IIBA International for their support in facilitating the reach of renowned and topical speakers, to benefit the Australian business analysis community.
The IIBA Australia board and branches have been working hard since this strategy was first identified; the Professional Day evolved out of the board planning day analysis in September 2012. A year later with many hours of voluntary board and branch effort, the Professional Day series have been a success!

IIBA® Australia Chapter
Many Business Analysts in Australia presume that when they or their organisation pays International Institute of Business Analysis® (IIBA) membership ($125 US for new membership or $110 US for renewal) it immediately goes to IIBA Australia Chapter. This is not true, as the IIBA Australia Chapter does not receive any portion from the membership fee paid.
IIBA Australia Chapter was first formed in 2006 and has increasingly delivered value to the Australian membership base and wider Business Analysis profession. The chapter comprises of:
The Board, delivering the chapter strategies and national initiatives (such as webinars); and
The local Branches (Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney) each delivering a number of events and study groups.
Over the journey IIBA in Australia has grown into the 3rd largest membership base throughout the world, however financially IIBA Australia Chapter has not received the membership growth benefits. In July 2010 the IIBA Australia Chapter bank account was zero however through sponsorship, non-member event fees and BABOK study group fees a basic budget has been developed.
This income which has been obtained through the hard work and effort of volunteers often after works hours or weekends, has been difficult to obtain and maintain but has been critical to the chapter running activities.
IIBA Australia Chapter would like to take this time and hopefully you will too to thank the efforts of the IIBA Australia Chapter board and branches, and our sponsors Candle, Bay3000, Ajilon and DDLS as they have enabled chapter activities to deliver value to the business analysis profession.
