The vision and mission for the NBMBAA organization will be achieved through the Indianapolis chapter’s three strategic goals:

Chapter History

The Indianapolis Chapter was formed in 1990 as an Interest Group. The founders of the group believed the city of Indianapolis was in need of a professional organization for African Americans. The vision was to provide the African-American professional community with advanced degrees an opportunity to come together and network as a group. The National Black MBA Association offered such an opportunity and this group of visionaries petitioned the national organization for admittance. A few of the people involved in this effort were Claudia Stevens Maddox, Jerry Johnson, and Emmanuel “Mann” Harris. A great debt is owed to these individuals for their foresight. Others playing a prominent role in developing the chapter were Ed Thompson, Sheila Faison, Bill Reynolds, Carolyn Johns (Christian), Darlene Sowell, and Frank Davis.

The Tampa Bay Chapter started as an interest group in 2007 by 7 professionals from various industries; Sammecia Bagley, Benjamin James, Chante' Jones, Max Oligario, Raymond Sweet and Jessica Weston, who saw the need for a meeting place organization for Black MBA's in the Tampa Bay area. Within several months the membership grew rapidly, which deemed the group to be awarded Interim Chapter status at the 2008 National Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida. Since then, the chapter has continued to grow membership, create partnerships and strengthen its local presence in the community.

nbmbaa chapter presidentThe National Black MBA Association, Inc. (NBMBAA) is a non-profit organization of minority MBAs, business professionals, entrepreneurs and MBA students. With thousands of members world-wide working in both private and public sectors, we share a commitment to education and business - the two principal keys to the economic development of the Black community.

Chapter History

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, many African American managers relocated or were recruited to the Twin Cities to enhance their career opportunities. While moving to Minnesota was good for career advancement, largely, they found themselves socially and professionally isolated when away from their offices. This shared experience led charter members to create a professional support system - a local chapter of NBMBAA. In partnership with General Mills, Pillsbury, First Bank [now US Bancorp], Norwest Bank, 3M and Honeywell, a Twin Cities chapter was born.

Our members are graduate students and business professionals representing a variety of professional industries with the common the goals of exposure, career development and advancement. The chapter's commitment is to provide valued-added programming and services that align with these goals.

The local chapter is managed by a volunteer executive committee of elected officers who act under established bylaws. The executive committee establishes policy, guides programs, approves expenditures and sets overall strategy for the organization.

The principal source of funding is revenue-sharing from our affiliate organization, The National Black MBA Association, Inc., which is headquartered in Chicago, IL. The NBMBAA expects that all chapter organizations will apply the funds to local career development and scholarship programs.

nbmbaa chapter presidentThe National Black MBA Association prides itself as an organization that empowers visionaries. Where there is no vision, the people perish. As a cadre of trained business professionals, we must play a vital, substantive role in supporting local entrepreneurs, professional development, higher education, and guidance for our youth. Economic empowerment is as essential today as ever in ensuring a continued legacy of generational wealth. As we achieve new goals, we must never forget the vigilance and price paid by our predecessors that passed on savings, property, small businesses, education, ingenuity andour indomitable spirit.

Every year African-Americans lose millions of dollars in real estate simply by not paying their property taxes. From farmland, commercial property, multi-family units and their personal residences, the recession has accelerated the devastation. The WNY chapter should serve as a strategic resource to help people take advantage of wealth building strategies and protect these assets we’ve work so hard for. I look forward to serving this organization and our community.

Chapter History

Founded in 1991 at the 13th Annual National Black MBA Association® (NBMBAA) Conference and Exposition in New York, Leaders of Tomorrow® (LOT) is an academic enrichment and leadership program serving high school students who demonstrate leadership potential.
