Our Mission

About the NABA Detroit Chapter

The Detroit Association of Professional Accountants was formed in 1969. The group recognized the need for a professional organization of minority accountants to address the problems encountered by those individuals seeking careers in public accounting, government and private industry. Currently, the Detroit Chapter has over 100 members. On June 19, 1972, the Detroit Association of Professional Accountants applied for membership in NABA. The Detroit Chapter received its charter shortly thereafter. The two co-founders of NABA are John L. Davis, CPA and Dennis O. Green, CPA.

The NABA Detroit Chapter is one of the largest professional minority business organizations in the state of Michigan. Our primary goal is to encourage and increase the percentage of minorities to pursue academic studies and professional careers in accounting and finance. We are part of the Central Region Chapter of the NABA.
