AIS members enjoy exclusive access to the AIS eLibrary, one of the most comprehensive and extensive elibraries in the field of information systems. In addition to providing access to ten highly regarded journals, the AIS eLibrary also allows members to peruse our conference proceedings and to take advantage of exclusive discounted rates to a growing number of professional journals.
AIS members have exclusive access to two of the most preeminent information systems conferences in the world: The International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) and the Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS). Additionally, members are granted exclusive access to AIS-affiliated conferences, such as the European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS) and the Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS).
Are you ready to plan your next career move? As an AIS member, you can use the Career Placement Service to view the latest job postings from top information systems schools and corporate recruiters, and to post your resume. Furthermore, AIS members can take advantage of the open and private placement services that are offered at our two conferences, if they are also registered for the conferences.
Perhaps the most important benefit of AIS membership is the community itself. By becoming an AIS member, you will have access to the best and brightest information systems academics and professionals, and all they have to offer. Here are just a few of the ways that AIS fosters a sense of community amongst its members:
- Special Interest Groups (SIGs): AIS’ SIGs facilitate networking and the exchange of ideas within particular areas of interest.
- Chapters: Each of the AIS regional chapters enable you to cultivate relationships with your local AIS colleagues.
- Awards: AIS offers several prestigious awards to its members for their contributions to the world of information systems.
- Faculty Directory: Staying in contact—and establishing new contacts—with your fellow academics is vital to your career. That’s why AIS offers a comprehensive faculty directory, with listings of both member and non-member IS academics throughout the world.
AIS produces a monthly e-newsletter to keep you informed about what’s going on in AIS so you don’t miss out on any great opportunities or information.
