President’s Corner

Crystal D. Martin, 2014-Present


I want to personally thank you for visiting the new NABA Greensboro website! Thank you to each member that has joined NABA Greensboro Chapter, one of newest professional chapters added to the umbrella of NABA Headquarters in North Carolina . We can all agree that the NABA Greensboro Chapter has produced an enormous amount of success in a short period of time. I am honored to be your inaugural president and the leaders within the organization look forward to helping you propel into great success in your 2019 academic and professional careers.

The vision for NABA Greensboro for 2019  is composed of four words: Engagement. Development. Innovation.  and Impact.  What does this mean? It is imperative that the chapter focuses on developing professionals and students through networking opportunities, seminars, and leadership opportunities. In addition, member and  corporate partner engagement is vital to the composition of organizational success as we settle into our “sweet spot” and areas in which we can express our talents. As an engaged group, we will make an impact in the Triad community, among students/faculty, and among professional members. Finally, the members in this organization can “Lift as We Climb” through mentoring.

The three pillars that will be our focus for 2019 are: Corporate Partnership, Membership Engagement, and Development. In 2019, you can expect to see CPE sessions hosted by various corporations, professional development seminars, networking opportunities, and seminars designed to help students prepare for the workforce. Corporate Partners can expect opportunities in which you can build your brand in order to help your corporation recruit and network with top notch professionals in the Triad. In addition, we strive to help you meet your diversity and inclusion goals. 

If you have not had the opportunity to join NABA please register on line at and select NABA Greensboro Professional Chapter.

Again, I thank you for the opportunity to serve as the Chapter President! I look forward to the next dimension of NABA Greensboro. I know through hard work we can collectively make an impact in such a manner that leaves an lasting imprint in the Triad!
