Letter From The President

Stephanie Parrish-Chester

To our NABA Charlotte family and friends: Welcome, welcome, welcome!

It is with great pleasure and honor that I serve as your NABA Charlotte Chapter President. Having a great appreciation for all this chapter has executed and accomplished in the past, I’m excited and eager to see what the future holds.

This year, we will be focusing on a revamp of the content and structure of much of the programming that we’ve grown to expect. You will notice very intentional acts to reengage members and immerse our students in our professional activities. We will continue to foster mutually beneficial relationships with our loyal group of corporate partners, as well as the stellar organizations in and around the Charlotte area.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead such a dynamic and remarkable chapter in this great organization. I look forward to all the new milestones we’ll reach together as We Lift As We Climb.
