New year, new opportunities

2023 is upon us

Each new year brings with it new opportunities. At the IIBA Ottawa-Outaouais, this means a year ahead of compelling chapter meeting speakers, popular ECBA / CCBA / CBAP study group sessions, fun social events and other opportunities for professional development and networking. Check out our events calendar for our monthly events. Better still – subscribe to our monthly newsletter to keep informed about all our events and to hear about the latest news and developments in our chapter.

Chapter event format changes

After another challenging year, and after our local health care system recently faced difficulties due to a resurgence of RSV, COVID and the flu, we’re looking forward to a time when we can meet with you in person. We’re investigating a mix of fully in-person versus hybrid versus virtual events (which will vary by event) to determine what will work best for our chapter members and BA community. You may notice some more chapter event formats in 2023. We hope you’ll continue to support us as we adjust to this post-pandemic world we’re now in.

Mentoring options

In the meantime, if you’re new to business analysis or would like to connect with a more experienced business analyst and be encouraged in your personal development OR if you’re an experienced BA who takes delight in helping others and would like to improve your leadership and communication skills, why not consider joining our Mentoring Program? All IIBA Ottawa-Outaouais chapter members are welcome to participate.

What a team!

If you have attended any of our chapter events, did you know that behind all of the work of our chapter is an amazing team of volunteers? Thank you to our Board of Directors, our Deputies, and numerous other individuals contributing their time and talents. Thank you to our many chapter members and event participants.  We greatly appreciate your participation, support and feedback—you are the focus of all that we do!

On behalf of our 2022-2023 Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for a great 2022 and am looking forward to seeing you at an event this year.

President, IIBA Ottawa-Outaouais Chapter
