KnowledgeNet Chapter Volunteer Resources

Thank you for volunteering your valuable time to help promote the field of privacy in your local community! With your help, KnowledgeNet Chapters bring the local privacy community together through free educational meetings and networking activities. Chapters give members the opportunity to meet peers in their local area, learn something new, and earn free continuing privacy education (CPE) credits.

KnowledgeNet Chapters are traditionally led by four co-chairs. Each chapter chair plays an integral part in planning and executing chapter meetings and activities. Some chapters also have a dedicated Young Privacy Professional (YPP) to plan networking activities.

Below are some resources to keep handy that will help you succeed during your volunteer term:

Listserve: This private listserve is just for KnowledgeNet Chapter Chairs and Young Privacy Professionals to communicate throughout the year and ask questions, get ideas, and share information. The IAPP will also use this to communicate important updates and helpful information to our chapter volunteers. Email to start a conversation.

KnowledgeNet Insider: The IAPP sends out the KnowledgeNet Insider, a series of quarterly emails, to keep volunteers up to date with the latest information and insights on our chapter program and other important happenings at the IAPP. Be sure to check your inbox!
