IIBA Hawaii Chapter History

August 2016 - We're Officially Chartered!

If you have been involved with the Business Analysis community in Hawaii, then you know that we are ramping things up with the chapter. We are currently working on the State of Hawaii paperwork to become a recognized not-for-profit. In early August we submitted a formal charter application with IIBA headquarters and on August 30th the IIBA recognized our new status. This was officially announced to the community at an event on September 14th at HMSA. More details are in the slide deck embedded from YouTube below:


Membership in the First Year

On 4/22/2010, our first five volunteers answered the call and met at the ING Direct Cafe to plan a kickoff for the Chapter. In that year, IIBA membership in Hawaiʻi has nearly tripled. Had our volunteers also tripled to 15, we would be much further along in obtaining our charter and providing services. If you can help, please contact one of us.

Roundtable Discussing "Business Cases" Held On April 21, 2011

Our first Breakfast Roundtable focused on "Business Cases". It was a casual but lively discussion facilitated by Glenn Hamamura and Jim Steele.

Everyone may continue the conversation on our LinkedIn group where Glenn has posted references to the books he mentioned. 

Thanks to all the participants for making the event a success.

Chapter Kickoff Meeting Held On July 28, 2010

We held our IIBA-required chapter Kickoff Meeting on July 28, 2010, with a capacity-filling 47 attendees.

Kitty Hass, Director IIBA international headquarters, presented (via teleconference) an overview of the IIBA and benefits of membership.

Jim Steele presented the tasks needed to form a chapter and called for volunteers.

By the end of the meeting we had 12 of the 15 signatures required to petition the IIBA to charter a chapter.
