The overall goal of the QAI Global Community of chapters is to provide a framework for IT QA / QC professionals to network with other individuals and to increase their knowledge and expertise in these areas. As a result, the Institute strives to work with the chapters to promote that objective. Chapter meetings and programs provide an important opportunity for active participation of these professionals. There are many different needs and desires among the various chapters. In order to allow for individual chapter requirements to be satisfied most effectively, the chapters have expressed the preference to organize their programs in a fashion that best meets their objectives. For this reason, there are no stringent prerequisites placed on a chapter as a part of the QAI Global Community such as dues requirement or financial fees, etc.
The groups schedule CSQA, CSTE, and CSPM certification exam training courses and other QAI seminars. An additional significant benefit results in professional networking among the members of the local quality assurance organization. This not only helps to enhance individual professional growth but also helps in providing valuable information for improving operations in the companies they represent.
