To maximize its outreach, WIIS encourages the creation of U.S. Chapters and International Affiliates. Chapters and Affiliates enhance WIIS's efforts to advance the leadership and professional development of women in the field of international security. WIIS Chapters and Affiliates operate independently but in close contact with WIIS Global. Currently, WIIS has a network of nine U.S. Chapters and 25 International Affiliates.
