ISA Regions

About our Regions

Regions are geographic sub-units of ISA, offering opportunities for members to exchange ideas and research with local colleagues. Membership in regions is automatically determined by the geographic location of the member.

Region Guidelines

Regions each have their own bylaws defining their structure and purpose. ISA just has a few basic guidelines for regions:

  • Regions need to keep at least 250 members.
  • Region presidents can only serve up to five consecutive years.
  • Regions must submit yearly reports to the Governing Council.
  • Region finances and contracts must go through ISA-HQ
