The Association for Information Systems (AIS) is an international, not-for-profit, professional association with the stated mission to serve society through the advancement of knowledge and the promotion of excellence in the practice and study of information systems.[2] Membership is made up primarily of academic educators, researchers, and institutions that specialize in information systems (IS) development, implementation, and evaluation.[3] The association has members in more than 90 countries,[2] and is led by a president who is annually elected from one of three world regions—the Americas, Europe and Africa, and Asia-Pacific—on a rotating basis. The governing Council is made up of elected functional vice-presidents and other officers and council members who are elected in the three world regions.[3] The association organizes two annual conferences for IS researchers, educators, and students: The International Conference on Information Systems (I.C.I.S.), which alternates between the three world regions, and the Americas Conference For Information Systems (AMCIS), which is located at different sites in North, Central, and South America. The Association publishes academic journals including:[4]
