Chapter Membership

The IIBA® operates a two tier membership structure – IIBA® global membership and IIBA® Chapter (local) membership. IIBA® Chapters advance the mission and objectives of IIBA® by promoting professional standards and practices at the local level and do not receive any financial support or contribution from IIBA® global. 

The IIBA® Australia Chapter was formed in 2006 and is now the 3rd largest IIBA® Chapter in the world. Run by dedicated and committed volunteers, the IIBA® Australia Chapter is self funded and takes pride in delivering value to the Australian business analysis community through a comprehensive events and study group program. 

To become a member of the IIBA® Australia Chapter, you must first be a member of the IIBA® global. The IIBA®Australia Chapter Membership fee was introduced on 1st July 2013. It is AUD$33 per person and must be paid direct to the IIBA® Australia Chapter separately. It is a membership fee in addition to the IIBA® global membership.

FAQ

I am an IIBA® Global member. Does this mean I am an IIBA® Australia Chapter member? 
No. IIBA® provides a two tier membership structure – IIBA® Global membership and IIBA® Chapter membership. Being an IIBA® Global member makes you eligible to join any local chapter, however, you have to join the local chapter separately and pay a Chapter membership fee. 

Why do I have to pay two fees separately? 
The IIBA® are currently reviewing the IT infrastructure and hope to provide Chapters with an integrated IT solution to support a single membership payment for both global and chapter membership fees. Until that is available, all Chapter membership fees must be paid locally direct to the Chapter. To join IIBA® Australia Chapter, see Join IIBA® Australia Chapter". 

Isn't IIBA® Australia Chapter membership free? 
IIBA® Australia Chapter was formed in 2006 and provided a free membership for 7 years up to July 1st, 2013.
