The formation of the Columbus, Ohio Chapter began in November, 2006. Business analysts from local companies and education providers began meeting to discuss the formation of a local IIBA® chapter. The interim administrative board was formed.
Several of the initial founders were involved in a similar effort called the Requirements Special Interest Group (RSIG) of the Central Ohio Quality Assurance Association. The mission of the RSIG was similar to that of the IIBA®, and we decided to join forces with the IIBA® to bring requirements and business analysis related presentations to the central Ohio Business Analyst and Requirements Analyst community. The RSIG was founded by Terry Weigmann, Harold Thomas, and Joseph Tanner in the spring of 2003.
In March, 2007 the Columbus, Ohio Chapter of the IIBA® secured its first Chapter Premier Sponsor, Babbage Simmel, and held its inaugural meeting. The IIBA® officially recognized the Columbus, Ohio Chapter in July, 2007.
We are vigorously pursuing our goals and have begun a monthly schedule of expert presentations on timely business analysis issues. We have a strong commitment to professional growth and knowledge sharing.
