STRUCTURE - Affiliation, Bylaws, Policy
The National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., (NABA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association formed in 1969 under the laws of New York. The National Board of Directors determines the overall strategy and governing policy. Board members have a fiduciary responsibility to “steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.”[1]  Learn more about NABA’s structure at www.nabainc.org/structure.



FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY - 990s
NABA’s day-to-day operations are managed by a professional staff based in Greenbelt, Maryland. A review of our bylaws (updated by the Board on June 29, 2019) and most recent Form 990 can provide additional insights into our mission, membership, governance structure and operations.
