    Do I have to be a member of (ISC)² in order to join an (ISC)² Chapter?

    A:

    You must be an (ISC)² member to start a chapter. However, once the chartering chapter has received its charter and becomes an official chapter of (ISC)², then non-(ISC)² certified professionals can join an (ISC)² Chapter. Check with the local chapter to confirm.

    If I’m a member of (ISC)², am I automatically a member of my local chapter?

    If I belong to a chapter does that mean I am a member of (ISC)²?
