NABA’s success is its ability to develop and encourage professional potential and growth of our members. “Lifting As We Climb” is our motto and the standard we apply in our efforts to assist our members in realizing their personal, professional and economic potential through a combination of professional and personal education, leadership training, and access to professional and social networks. We are also recruiting and developing a new pool of professionals with our Accounting Awareness Programs (ACAP) for high school students and our student membership for college and university attendees interested in the financial profession. Membership in, and affiliation with, our association will give you a direct link to future and current business leaders as well as access to opportunities for growth.  We urge you to join us in this effort by becoming a member of the premier association for African-American business professionals.
