The Atlanta Chapter carries a strong brand which allows us to carry the distinguish title of the largest and premier chapter within our association and a leader among the many organizations in Metro Atlanta. As the old passage states, “to whom much is given, much is required;” I and the entire Chapter’s Leadership Team are firmly committed to providing value to our members, partners, and community. We will continue to serve as a voice and ambassadors for higher education, entrepreneurship, and professional career development not just throughout Atlanta but the entire NBMBAA organization.
