Corporate Partner

The Corporate Partnership Program is designed to solidify the relationships that the region and chapter have established with its corporate supporters and facilitate achievement of our mutual objectives. The theme "NABA and You - A Commitment to Excellence and Diversity" certainly signifies a good approach towards building a qualified and diverse work force. The program's objectives and endeavors are geared to;

  • foster recruitment, retention, growth and development of minority accounting/finance students and professionals; and
  • provide funding necessary to underwrite the region/chapter activities/programs.
