NBMBAA® Boston Chapter


Darla Pires DeGrace

Darla Pires DeGrace, Boston Chapter President


The Boston Chapter was founded in 1986, and attracts a diverse group of students and professionals who are visionaries, leaders, and change agents. The organization’s membership base is comprised of both MBAs and professionals that do not have an MBA. 

In 1991, visionary MBAs and educators associated with the Boston, New York, and New Jersey chapters launched the Leaders of Tomorrow program (LOT), a leadership development training program geared towards high school students, at the National Black MBA Annual Conference and Exposition in St. Louis, with key initial financial and leadership investment from M&M Mars and Bentley University. In subsequent years, a design team, made up largely of NBMBAA members and educators from the Boston Chapter, developed a unique series of workshops to help young people at risk of underperforming to realize their full potential. In 2016, the Boston Chapter is celebrating its 25th Anniversary of founding LOT.
