MU National Association of Black Accountants

Greetings from the chapter president




Hello and welcome to the site of the National Association of Black Accountants Student Chapter at the University of Missouri!

Perhaps you are a student of the University of Missouri looking for a business organization to become a member of, or maybe you're a recruiter looking to discover a few good candidates as employees for your company. Whichever the case, I hope you find the information on our chapter's website to be of interest and value to you.

This year I have the privilege of serving as our chapter's President. This, however, does not take away from the devoted members of this chapter. In the book Good to Great, Jim Collins stated, "To build a great company, you have to get the right people on the bus." The members of this chapter are those "right people." They not only are committed to their studies here at the University of Missouri, but also to the advancement of their peers. Through the coordination of NABA programs designed to further the skills, both inside and outside of the classroom, of accounting students, our chapter is most certainly making its mark on Mizzou.

In order to promote the success of our chapter members as well as the student body of the Trulaske College of Business, this school year we will be implementing several new initiatives. They include exam reviews for introductory level accounting courses and a series of informational programs to enlighten accounting students of their opportunities. Our dedication to our success and that of those around us is characterized by NABA's motto "Liftiing as We Climb", for greatness is not measured simply according to your accomplishments, but how you utilize them to pull the people surrounding you up to the next level. Such is the mission of NABA, Inc. to which we model our chapter goals around, from our networking events to our mentoring program.

But enough about us, we are here for you! Feel free to browse through our site. I hope you enjoy what you see!



Alicen Irby, President
