Most W3C Chapters have a direct relationship with one of the W3C Host organizations. If a Chapter is guided by another Chapter, its primary relationship would be with that lead-Chapter.

To become a W3C Chapter, you need to review the information on the Activities and Roles pages. They outline the requirements for being a Chapter. If you are interested in becoming a W3C Chapter please contact J. Alan Bird, W3C Global Business Development Leader.
