QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Do I need to be a Member of IIBA® to join the Chapter?
Yes. Only official IIBA® Ottawa-Outaouais Chapter members are eligible to vote at the Chapter's Annual General meeting and hold office. Membership in the Chapter is open to any member of IIBA® in good standing.  At present, Chapter membership does not require IIBA® members to pay any additional dues.

However, neither IIBA® nor Chapter membership is required to be involved with the Chapter.

Everyone interested in Business Analysis is welcome to be part of the IIBA® O-O community, access news and information, and attend our year-long calendar of activities.  We recognize that Business Analysis touches on a broad range of roles: business analysis, systems analysis, requirements analysis or management, project management, consulting, process improvement, and more. We believe that, by encouraging broadened participation, we enhance our collaborative competencies and our profession.

How do I join IIBA®?
There are many great reasons to join IIBA® - including preferred rates at Chapter events.
Chapters are not involved in the management of IIBA® memberships and receive no share of members' dues to the parent association. Membership in IIBA® is granted and managed by the international body only. Ongoing membership in IIBA® is a prerequisite of Chapter membership.
