Each Chapter will have an elected Chairman and Council, the Chapter Chairman has a seat on the IIOM board.
Are members from one Chapter able to attend another Chapters meetings?
It is IIOM policy to enable any member to attend any Chapter meeting no matter where it is held.
How is each Chapter funded

What level of independence does each Chapter have?
Each Chapter will generate its own budget from IIOM funds and request special project funding from IIOM if necessary. Each Chapter will manage a local website in an appropriate language. Chapter meeting content and organization will be locally agreed.
