JOIN A CHAPTER
Local Ignatian Business Chapters are organized through colleges, universities, and alumni organizations, local business leaders or associations, and parishes, with names to reflect their unique character. A chapter coordinator schedules meetings, communicates with members regularly, and facilitates discussion. The group also may select a chaplain who advances theological reflection.
The initial team of four to eight members extends personal invitations to another 35-50 professionals. This process normally results in a core group of 25 that yields a consistent 10-15 person meeting attendance.
START A CHAPTER
An Ignatian Business Chapter often forms as the natural outcome of education programs, retreats, or days of reflection. Any group of business professionals can start a local affiliate. IBC provides guidance for starting and sustaining a chapter anywhere in the world. Support continues with leader mentoring, monthly emails, a web library of discussion resources, and biennial conferences for chapter leaders.
