All IDA members belong to one of the eight geographic regions of IDA.
The eight regions are:
As a member you are automatically affiliated with the region and branch you live in (there are several branches in each region), but you have to sign up for the local professional networks you want to be a member of.
Each year, the regions arrange conferences, home meetings, and social and cultural activities for their members. More than 1,000 events, involving more than 30,000 participants, take place each year.
The regions focus on getting out offers of events to anyone from students, the unemployed, families with kids, the career minded, to the retired.
Remember to stay updated on what is going on in your region. Also, remember to keep an eye out for the offers you get from your newsletters.
