| President's Message - Call to Action – Become a Mentor

Our chapter is partnering with the University of Calgary – Continuing Education and International Professional Programs. We are looking to provide mentorship to students in post-secondary studies focusing on Business Analysis. Please consider giving not only your time, but yourself. As a mentor, you gain continuing development units to use for your IIBA® recertification. Please consider becoming a mentor to a person studying in the field of Business Analysis.
Please contact Mentor@Calgary.IIBA.org if you are interested in participating.
