In December 1969, nine African-Americans financial leaders met in New York City to discuss the unique challenges and limited opportunities they faced in the accounting profession. In that year, there were only 136 African-American Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) out of a total of 100,000 in the United States. This group wanted to establish an organization to address the concerns of Black professionals entering the accounting field and make a commitment to professional and academic excellence.
Today, NABA continues to create opportunities for the purpose of enlarging the pipeline of Black Business Leaders into every level of accounting, finance, business, and entrepreneurship.
