Our Mission

About the NABA Philadelphia Chapter

The Philadelphia Chapter of NABA began in November 1973, when approximately 50 individuals met to discuss forming a local chapter. As an outgrowth of that meeting, 27 individuals worked tirelessly towards this goal and the chapter was chartered at its First Annual Awards Banquet in February 1974. 

Currently, the Philadelphia Chapter boasts a membership of over 200 professional members. Approximately 120 student members are affiliated with the Chapter through at-large membership as well as 9 student chapters at area colleges and universities.
