We give back to the community and extend our circle of influence to not only our fellow peers but to society as well. As we learn to share and grow as a community, we are given the opportunity to strengthen our understanding of what it means to be invested in both individual success as well as public welfare.


We pride ourselves on providing numerous events and opportunities, allowing all members to network with corporate professionals and Illinois BAP alumni. Furthermore, the Professional Internal Development team offers many valuable resources for members to elevate their business acumen and corporate responsibility.


We recognize the importance of forming and maintaining strong relationships with past and current BAP members. Through various committees and leadership positions available, we are able to further realize our appreciation for collaboration and camaraderie.
