President's Message 

Seasons’ Greetings and Happy New Year;

I wish you and yours all the best this holiday season.

I want to thank you for being a member of IIBA® and this chapter. You are at the heart of our mission statement. We strive to provide you resources to become more proficient and stellar in your business analysis profession.

I want to recognize the many volunteers without whose monumental effort and commitment, the chapter would cease to exist. Please take a moment to look at the volunteer structure of the chapter to recognize all the individual who contribute to smoothly running our operations. We’re looking to add new members to our stellar team, so take a look at the volunteer opportunities page to see if there is anything that you might enjoy pitching in with the chapter. We would love to have you!

Finally, I would like to recognize our sponsors. Our sponsors provide funding that allows us the opportunity to function and grow. We need our sponsors and we look to provide value in return. This past year we were happy to add University of Calgary to our sponsors list.

I personally invite you to attend our Networking and Volunteer Appreciation event to kick off the New Year on January 12, 2023.

Seasons’ Greetings and Happy New Year.

Reg Cracknell,



​​​​Spotlight - Sonal Patel!

This month would like to recognize and celebrate Sonal Patel, who has been an official Calgary Chapter Mentor for seven years: guiding and encouraging our members with her patience and wisdom.

Sonal has been a member and volunteer with IIBA since 2013 and part of our chapter since 2016. In her early career, she wished to have a mentor to guide and support. So, as part became a part IIBA she jumped at the opportunity to share her knowledge and experience with other junior BAs.

We would like to thank her for being a role model and her contribution to our organization.
