City Centers are the places where IIDA members come together. In each city where they are found, City Centers organize and deliver programs that provide educational and networking opportunities for IIDA mem­bers on a local level. IIDA members may attend any program offered at any City Center in any Chapter.

Each City Center’s governance structure and operation is subject to the bylaws, policies and procedures of  the Chapter. The Chapter Board acts as an umbrella administrative group. IIDA recommends a guideline of 10 or more Members in a geographic area or city before forming a City Center. However, IIDA Recognizes that it is the commitment and level of interest of members that is most important.

IIDA Indiana currently has three City Centers: Evansville, Fort Wayne,  Indianapolis.
