Membership

The mission of NABA, Inc. is to address the professional needs of its members and to build leaders that shape the future of the accounting and finance professions with an unfaltering commitment to inspire the same in their successors.

The Membership Committee strives to create an environment to achieve the professional goals and needs of its members. This ongoing effort is led through providing a forum for various professionals within the accounting, finance and business related industries to connect with other professionals. The committee function is to unite professional members who have similar interest, ideas, are committed to professional excellence and growth, and are seeking enhancing opportunities for minorities in the accounting, finance and business related professions.

There are ongoing volunteering opportunities and various ways to display your talents. If you are interested in contributing your efforts and time, please contact us for additional information at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Student Member Services

Student Member Services (SMS) encourages and assists students pursuing an education in accounting, finance, or accounting information systems and who plan to enter the accounting profession. SMS serves many roles for the professional NABA chapter and provides oversight and support to our University of North Florida (UNF) student chapter.  The goal of the Committee is to continually enhance the student membership experience at NABA.

SMS sponsors several key programs and services designed to address the needs of students majoring in the fields of accounting, finance, or accounting information systems. These opportunities are intended to provide opportunities for students to obtain the grooming necessary to begin a successful career in business and to obtain competencies that are not taught in the classroom such as Business Etiquette, Networking, Professional Development and Money Management. We provide workshops, social events, networking opportunities and scholarships to our students. Some programs that the Committee is responsible for includes:

  • Student Officer Workshop Training
  • Pre-Southern Region Student Conference Workshop
  • SCREP Workshops
  • Scholarship Program
  • Annual NABA Day

SMS is also responsible for recruiting students to join the professional chapter upon graduation via the College Pipeline Program (1st year after graduation free membership).
