ISRA Chapters are the containers of SIGs in their respective geographical area. If an ISRA Member wants to recommend and contribute towards the setting up of a new SIG, the detailed request needs to be forwarded to along with the chosen area of subject.

Chapters have the option of specializing in one SIG or can cover all the SIG depending upon their choice and preference. Chapters are more of a geographical concept whereas SIGs are more of a knowledge domain irrespective of the geographical location.
