In addition to our IA Institute supported Local Groups, we have compiled a list of over 1000 active information architecture, information science and user experience groups all over the globe. Our list contains organizations in which IAI members claim membership; however it is neither exhaustive, nor is any specific group recommended over any other in particular. Our list demonstrates the breadth of knowledge of our membership and their reach among related disciplines. Perhaps there is a group near you.
