NABA News for Professionals and Students

Registration is now open! Join us in Hollywood, Florida for the NABA 2022 Convention & Expo this summer!     
This June, let’s reset, reconnect, and recharge together!

The last two years have been challenging for our country, and our professional communities and networks have faced unique difficulties.   Our theme this year, Insight: Recharge, will allow us to reflect, reimagine and recharge our careers, our organizations, and our communities as we look to advance the futures of Black Business Leaders.     We excitedly anticipate our first in-person gathering in two years and look forward to experiencing the unique energy that comes from sharing space, spending time, and being together as a community. This year’s convention is especially significant as we welcome students from across the country to join us for a Student Conference as a part of our National Convention. We are excited to have students experience the power and innovation that comes from engaging and networking with NABA nation professionals, partners and supporters.    

The 2022 Insight: Recharge conference will offer all that you love most about attending our national convention – highly engaging sessions to take your learning to the next level, paired with opportunities to make meaningful personal and professional connections.  

Register today to take advantage of early-bird rates!
