Our History & Purpose

Our story started over 15 years ago when a founding team led by Steve Erlank (Left photo) chartered the South Africa Chapter after a few years of organising the business analysis community in South Africa.

What followed was nothing short of visionary leadership as subsequent presidents stood on the shoulders of our forebears to build an inclusive and diverse chapter that is revered by one and all.
 
Our Board of Directors (BoD) is nominated by members to join the board. They are eligible to serve one two-year term and can stand for re-election once.
 
All our board members (BoD) are volunteers, driven by passion to advance business analysis in South Africa.
