Chapters

A local chapter is an extension of the DAA and now it's right in your home town. Think of it as an educational branch office of the association.

Because chapters are actually part of DAA - not separate organizations - local organizers can avoid the hassle of incorporating, getting an IRS determination as non-profit, filing taxes (even if a non-profit does not pay taxes it still has to file a return) and other government reports. Being involved in a local DAA Chapter is a perfect way for members to enhance their career by:

  • Developing skills you can use in your professional life
  • Becoming more involved in the local community
  • Networking with other digital measurement professionals
  • Furthering your own career while helping others to the same, and
  • Encouraging knowledge-sharing through educational programs

Below is a listing of the current Chapters available to DAA members.  Members must be logged in first, and then may join a chapter by registering on the My Committees page for the chapter they are interested in. 

We look for a minimum amount of DAA members and non-member contacts in any potential Chapter city in order to ensure its success. If you are interested in starting a local Chapter, please contact the membership office to see if your city meets this threshold.
