It is my pleasure to serve as your Chapter President and to welcome you on behalf of the Executive Board to the official website of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA) - New York Chapter. The New York Chapter is not only the oldest Chapter, we
are the largest professional chapter in the Association representing members in the fields of accounting, finance and business. Our membership base includes students, academia, entry-level professionals to senior executives, and small business owners. Whether you are a
current or prospective member or corporate partner or simply seeking more information about the organization, we hope that you will find our site easily accessible and a useful tool full with information about NABA, our upcoming events, and our stakeholders.

The New York Chapter is part of a national organization with a mission to "...address the professional needs of its members and to build leaders that shape the accounting and finance professions". With the assistance of our volunteers and corporate partners, we make possible
various types of events that are tailored for the development of our student and professional members focusing on personal and leadership development. The Chapter has several exciting events planned for the fiscal year with unique networking opportunities and we hope that you find the time participate in these activities.

We also invite you to become involved with our efforts to practice NABA’s motto of “Lifting As We Climb”. To achieve this mission, and with the invaluable assistance of our many corporate partners, we facilitate activities throughout the year to support our membership through
professional development sessions, community service, mentoring and networking opportunities.

Volunteering on a committee can allow you to expand your network, challenge you to new heights, improve your time management and event planning abilities and allow you to practice our motto.

Our corporate partners have found that we are a premier organization that they can be proudly associated not only as a means to recruit diverse talent within the fields of accounting, finance, and business, but also to work with in cohort in developing our young student members. Our
partners have benefited by having exposure to student and professional members, job search assistance, technical training for employees, and branding opportunities on Chapter’s letterhead, website, events and scholarship award. A total of $90,000 has been awarded over the last
three fiscal years by the Chapter to deserving college students preparing to enter in the fields of accounting, finance and other business disciplines. To learn more about our corporate partners, you can visit our partners’ page.
