AIS is pleased to recognize 28 Communities with the designation of Outstanding SIG, Chapter, or College for the 2018 reporting year.

AIS Communities contribute to the field of information systems through catering to specialized areas of study, geographic locations, and similar professional interests. The Outstanding Community designation celebrates the exceptional work of AIS Communities and their contributions toward supporting the mission of AIS through the advancement of knowledge and the promotion of excellence in the practice and study of information systems.

“Communities in AIS provide incredible opportunities for talented professionals to work together and learn from each other,” said Lakshmi Iyer, AIS Vice President of SIGs and Colleges. “It is an honor to announce this year’s outstanding communities and all that they have done for their field and personal growth.”

Ryan Wright, AIS Vice President of Membership and Chapters, added, “These communities play a critical role in AIS. They do everything from hosting events and organizing workshops to publishing journals and articles. We are thankful for all the work these dedicated communities do for AIS and our members.” 


AIS plans to showcase activities and accomplishments of Outstanding Communities in upcoming trainings to help all AIS Communities share ideas for improvement.
