As an individual business analyst, do you take your career seriously? If you're an employer, manager or leader of business analysts, do you take their professional competence seriously? Perhaps you aren't too sure what business analysis is, but your work involves designing and implementing business change?
If the answer to any of these is yes, and you're based in the UK, you should be a member of IIBA UK, the professional body for business analysts. We provide the opportunity for you to validate and develop your professional competence by meeting other people facing the same challenges, and to hear leading business analysts speak at our frequent events all over the UK.
Take a look at the events we've got planned for the future, and the ones we've organised in the past. Our events take place all over the UK and we promise you that once you've been to a few, you'll wonder how you ever managed without them. As a member, you get free access to all our branch events.
Not all visitors to this website are equal! if you're a member, you will get to see extra content that's either not available to the general public, or has to be paid for by non-members - for example, movies of our events plus recordings of our highly regarded webinars.
Some training providers offer discounted training courses to members of IIBA UK.
Our annual conference is an unparalleled experience for anyone working in business analysis or a related field. At this year's prices, the IIBA UK member discount is worth £269.10. One-third of that discount is exclusive to IIBA UK members. With the IIBA UK annual renewal fee at £25, that's an incredible return on investment.
Over a thousand of IIBA's 27,000 members are based in the UK. Increasingly, employers such as those advertising on our Jobs page are looking for IIBA certifications as a mark of quality. Being an active member of your local IIBA chapter is one way to differentiate yourself from the average 9-to-5 BA.
As soon as you begin attending events, you will start to become better known in the community. You can raise your profile even further by speaking at an event, by becoming a volunteer, or by standing for election to the Board of Directors.

You should also join our parent body, IIBA. This is a pre-requisite for chapter membership and brings you many other benefits, including
You will have free access to the online Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) and also the Agile Extension to the BABOK Guide.
The Business Analysis Competency Model is a valuable tool for planning professional development and career progression. You will have free access to this, as well as a self-assessment tool.
One of IIBA's best-kept secrets is the Online Library, which contains over 300 books. Many of these are not only essential reading, but would be expensive to buy, making this a valuable benefit.
IIBA members receive a significant discount on the fees for IIBA certifications.
There are a large number of webinars archived on the IIBA website, many of which are available to members only. New webinars are produced regularly.
