Q: Do I have to be a member of ISC2 in order to join an ISC2 Chapter?
A: You must be an ISC2 member to start a chapter. However, once the chartering chapter has received its charter and becomes an official chapter of ISC2, then non-ISC2 certified professionals can join an ISC2 Chapter. Check with the local chapter to confirm.
Q: If I’m a member of ISC2, am I automatically a member of my local chapter?
A: No. ISC2 members are not required to join an ISC2 Chapter. If you are interested in joining a chapter, then you will need to contact the local chapter for details. Visit the ISC2 Chapter Directory for contact information.
Q: If I belong to a chapter does that mean I am a member of ISC2?
