Community Leaders

About the DIA Community Leadership Council

The DIA Community Leadership Council are representatives from our most active topic areas in the DIA Communities Open Forum. Each is led by a Council Chair and a group of volunteer subject matter experts. You can find links to each of the Open Forum topics below.

If you are interested in becoming a Council Chair or Subject Matter Expert (or you simply want to help DIA plan community activities and discussions around topics that matter to you) please join a topic section* here, or reach out to one of the DIA Council Chairs directly.

*Topic sections are open to any DIA member interested in tracking the work of the Community Leaders and their Subject Matter Experts.
