IJIS Institute members are making a difference! Together we are empowering information sharing to promote safer and healthier communities through public sector policy, process and technology innovation.

What is an IJIS Membership & how does it work?

IJIS membership is open to all public sector levels of government, all policy and legislative entities that study / define / develop guiding doctrine, all academia / researchers / analysts that support public sector mission space, all practitioner organizations that represent public sector practitioners, and the private sector service providers that need to best understand public sector requirements in order to successfully support that mission with innovative and cost-effective technology solutions

The “key to successful IJIS membership” lies with your level of ENGAGEMENT! If members merely attend annual events or forums, you will be given the opportunity  to learn, share experiences, and network at several topic-specific conferences. If, on the other hand, you active participate at any (or several) of our Advisory Committee tables that represent target mission-communities (law enforcement at federal and state/local levels, courts, corrections, emergency communications, emerging technologies, and most recently cross-domain analytics) – you will have the opportunity to not only shape your organizational outcome with the information that you will collect during these discussions, but more, you will participate in shaping the national patterns and outcomes that will influence information sharing, policy making and operational programs throughout our nation. The choice is yours! 

Why become an IJIS Member?

How will you benefit through an IJIS Membership?

Given our twenty-year history, the value of IJIS membership is not merely about attending our annual events or topic-specific events throughout the year. The value of membership is about making a difference – whether you represent a public sector practitioner domain or agency, or, whether you represent a private sector industry member that supports public sector domains.

The broader IJIS community is about the “IJIS collaboration network”. We are about recruiting, engaging, facilitating, defining priorities, and collectively developing solutions to address those challenges at a “community table.”

We are very confident that bringing diverse and experienced stakeholders to the table will foster a working relationship that will enable collaboration and success. Whether success is represented in the development of a true working relationships with your target audience, whether it is understanding the policy implications of certain actions, whether operational understanding or support is required to ensure success, or ultimately, if a technical solution to support and enable data sharing and/or analysis is central to your goal – all facets are critical to success and are the essence of IJIS membership and engagement.
