Why Chapters?

IRPA AI Chapters, which began to launch across the globe last year in response to members requesting more localized, ongoing, grassroots ecosystems and communities, have now gone virtual.  Chaired by subject matter experts and practitioners from Experian, EY, Avaya and others, Chapters will now provide members with access to a local network, without leaving their home office.

Based on the current environment, we have partnered with a new virtual network platform, allowing Chapter members to have access to an always-on user group of like-minded professionals, accessible 365 days a year, with monthly online events and weekly content curated for that particular region.
