The IBNS Chapters

The IBNS encourages members who are geographically concentrated or share common topical interests to join together into groups and to further the achievement of the aims and objectives of the society by forming chapters. IBNS chapters exist in many countries and the Society is always seeking to support the formation of chapters where members show the willingness to do so.

A 2011 Calendar of events was produced by the former Chapters Secretary Dave Kenney.  You can download a copy here (6Mb)
