The Community Near You

The Community Outreach program is an important part of the chapter's efforts to bring the chapter to every corner of South Africa. To make a big difference, increase awareness, and meet particular needs in communities, we spearhead business analysis advocacy by reaching out to businesses,  professional associations, the government, endorsed education providers, schools, and any other entity that stands to benefit from business analysis. Another aim is to establish business analysis communities closer to where analysts live and work.
 
We aim to foster a feeling of belonging within the business analysis community by organizing intentional gatherings and in-person activities.
