Fostering valuable business relationships between the Washington DC region and the United Kingdom
Founded in 1987, the British-American Business Association (BABA) is the premier forum for British and American companies, organizations, and business professionals in the US mid-Atlantic region. BABA's diversity includes a range of industry-focused committees. These committees specialize in such sectors as: Defense, Aerospace, Transportation, Security, Energy, Environment, Finance, and Health. Through a variety of programs, BABA members exchange valuable information, establish networks, and pursue mutual interests.
The British-American Business Association (BABA) enables its members to develop US-UK business by supplying its members with useful information through programs and communications, including policy and market developments; facilitating networking between members and among the wider business community in Washington, DC; providing a conduit for relationship building between members and key US and UK government officials based in Washington, DC.
The launch of the Young Professionals' Group took place on October 14, 2010 at a sold out event at the British Embassy. To participate in future Young Professionals' events, please click here to Join BABA.
Young Professional Member Benefits
BABA believes that it is important to have a diverse membership that involves professionals at every stage of their careers. In particular, BABA has a keen interest to promote and involve young professionals in the organization. To encourage younger members, BABA organizes special networking events on their behalf and also runs a mentor matching service that pairs BABA young professionals based on their interests with senior BABA professionals with complementary career experiences. The mentors will keep in contact with the young professionals for up to a full year and meet at least twice in person for a face-to-face career building discussion.
