One of the many benefits of AIS membership includes involvement in the wide variety of communities based on location, professional interest or specialized fields of study. By joining one of these communities, members are able to interact with like-minded colleagues in order to affect or produce solutions within specific areas.
AIS Features four types of communities:
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
AIS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) allow those interested in a particular field of specialization to further connect with one another and exchange ideas and information. SIGs are organized around research topics.
AIS chapters allow information systems professionals and students who live in a particular region or country to come together and share knowledge and best practices.
AIS colleges are communities of colleagues with similar professional interests or roles. Colleges are dedicated to connecting like-minded AIS members to help them excel in their professional endeavors related to the topic of the college. Colleges are organized around professional roles or interests.
AIS has committed resources, structure, and support to its student chapters because undergraduate and graduate students in information systems are critical to the future of the discipline.
