  • We really want to communicate!  If you like being updated on chapter activities and hearing about other training opportunities in the Cleveland area, check your mail preferences on your IIBA profile ( and make sure the “Contact by local IIBA chapter” setting is set to “yes”.  On September 1st, fifty e-mail addresses were removed from the chapter’s mailing list because the individual’s mail preferences had this setting set to “no”.  We at the Cleveland Chapter want to be respectful of your communication preferences, so we will no longer send e-mail to members who’ve indicated that they do not wish to receive e-mails from the Cleveland chapter.  If you received the Chapter e-mail dated September 1st, then your e-mail preferences are set to ‘yes’ for “Contact by local IIBA chapter”.  Please contact me with any questions.

  • Members, are you interested in the BABOK 3.0?  We have a few copies available at the upcoming chapter meetings.  These are available on a first-come-first-served basis (we will not be reserving copies).  The cost is $40 and can be paid with cash or check at the chapter meeting.  That's a significant savings over the price being offered on-line.
