IBC values the participation of business leaders of all religions and philosophies and invites professionals and business people at all levels, as well as business school students, alumni, and academics, to join or create local chapters.
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 and monthly emails.
The Ignatian Business Chapters are now part of RENEW International. Help us to grow this critical ministry among professionals, notably those early in their careers.
