Have questions or concerns?

Join the Board of Directors

Members of the WIAD Board are nominated from the community. The board defines the strategic vision and establishes the roadmap with local organizers, committee leads, and the community-at-large.

Be a regional director or local affiliate

If you're part of a local meetup, consider becoming a local affiliate to continue the conversation locally. This won't require you to lose your identity as a local meetup. If you organized a local World IA Day event, then you're considered an affiliate.

Find a committee or task force

Each committee has a specific purpose. Each committee may have special task force groups to implement the work of the committee.
