Accelerate - Think Tank Powered by BNAR

BNAR Accelerate is an innovative think tank that ensures future relevance and value of our programs and services.


  1. Ensure BNAR offers relevant and meaningful programs, services and value now and into the future through the generation of ideas from new, diverse professional voices. 
  2. Create a leadership funnel for the association through enriching leadership training, coaching and mentoring that help participants advance in their careers.
  3. Reconsider the way in which BNAR association management is done.



Functioning as an adjunct body of the Board of Directors, Accelerate operates semi-autonomously to develop and execute its own agenda of priority projects while in close communication with the Board.

The time commitment will be a minimum of 6 virtual or in-person meetings per year - the exact scope of involvement and nature of projects will be determined by Accelerate participants themselves.
