About the IIBA Central Florida Chapter

Since our founding in 2007, the IIBA Central Florida Chapter has been the go to professional association for Business Analysts and related professionals in the central Florida area.   We are the local extension to the global International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA.org).

We welcome practitioners of all experience levels.  Long time pros, senior professionals, career changers, and students come together to learn, teach, share, grow, and develop the skills to accelerate their career.  Join us to engage with others who share your interest and passion for our profession.

We also foster relationships with the wider business community that recruits, employs, and trains BAs and related roles, helping to keep their finger on the pulse of talent in Central Florida.
