The Central Virginia IIBA Chapter is excited to host the first professional development day in the area specifically geared toward business analysts. This will be a fantastic opportunity for you to expand your skills set, learn about the latest industry trends, and network with your colleagues. You will also be eligible to claim up to six CDUs and PDUs for attending. We are happy to be able to bring this value-packed event to the greater Richmond area.

The theme of the Virginia Business Analysis Development Day (VABADD) is Business Analysis in Transformation. Four tracks are available over the course of the day: BA Trends, Professional Skills, Agile and Practitioner. The BA role has become more prominent, and the ever-changing requirements and opinions of what a business analyst is has importance in the success of major projects. Enterprises depend on business analysts to propel products and projects while connecting team members. This event focuses on the future of the business analyst role, while giving educational advancement as well.
