NBMBAA® Indianapolis Chapter

INDIANAPOLIS CHAPTER HISTORY

Rita Rogers

Rita Rogers, Indianapolis Chapter President

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.
