KnowledgeNet Chapters

Network, explore new perspectives, ask questions and share ideas with your peers in the data protection and privacy community.

KnowledgeNet meetings are a benefit created exclusively for IAPP members. These dynamic, FREE in-person networking and educational meetings are an opportunity to informally gather, share experiences and network with peers. New meetings are continually being planned, and each location has at least two per year. Meetings may include a presentation by an expert on a timely privacy topic and/or interactive discussions.

If you're interested in volunteering as a speaker or providing conference room space, or you'd like information about starting a new KnowledgeNet location, please e-mail us at knowledgenet@privacyassociation.org.
