The W3C Chapters play an important role in W3C being an international organization.
A W3C Chapter is a geographic or interest-based community of individuals associated with both W3C Member and non-Member organizations that are interested in W3C’s activities.
To find the W3C Chapter near you please check the Chapters Directory.
How to become a W3C Chapter
To become a W3C Chapter, you need to review the information on the Roles and Activities links above. There we outline the requirements for being a Chapter and the process for engaging W3C in the discussion around that potential. The primary contact within W3C for that discussion is J. Alan Bird, Global Business Development Leader.
W3C Chapters are aligned to one of the W3C Hosts which manages the primary W3C territory for their activities. There is a Territory Manager aligned to each Host. The Territory Manager is a member of the W3C Team and works under the direction of the Global Business Development Leader. A Territory Manager is the primary contact for W3C Chapter Managers.
