Chapters

By working together in Internet Society Chapters, our members help us advance our mission of a bigger and stronger Internet. Chapters are central to our work, bringing together members to run programs and activities dedicated to making a difference locally, informing policy, and educating the public about Internet-related issues.

There are more than 110 active Chapters across six continents. They provide unique regional perspectives on emerging Internet issues, share an interest and believe in our mission, and are committed to furthering our goals and objectives in their own communities.

Chapter activities

Our Chapters run many programs and events, all supporting our vision of an Internet for everyone. These include:

  • Educational events – educating members and the public about Internet-related issues such as security, broadband access, IPv6, child safety, network neutrality, and more.
  • Community programs – ensuring Internet access for economically disadvantaged people or those with disabilities, covering areas such as hardware, software, distribution, and best practices.
  • Public policy programs – informing policy and decision-makers about Internet issues such as the Internet way of networking, encryption, and access.
  • Networking events – helping members connect with like-minded people who share an interest in bringing the benefits of the Internet to everyone.

Join a Chapter

Join a Chapter today and help promote the Internet as a force for good.

In 2021 we've designed a new program for our members: Internet Society Fundamentals for Chapters.

The program was inspired by the great experience we had with 2020 Chapter training program as well as feedback on specific needs, requirements, challenges and the COVID-19 context. It aims to develop new community leaders equipped to tell data-driven stories about our key projects.

Chapter Stories

Our Chapters do incredible work in their local communities. Join them to shape an Internet that benefits all of humanity.
