MBBI Regional Groups provide a venue for MBBI members to meet in person or connect virtually with other members and the organization. Regional Groups are gatherings of MBBI members by region. A “region” may be a continent, a country, a state or province or city. The groups are free-form and reflect the structure chosen by regional group members. To start your own Regional Group in Europe, please contact Elodie van Sytzama , for any other international group, contact our administration.
