INFORMS Connect is a tremendous tool for our communities to easily communicate with their membership. Current officers of Sections and Societies are automatically subscribed to the INFORMS Community Officers group as a Daily Digest subscriber.

When your Board is contemplating Bylaws changes, review the current version of the Model Bylaws. INFORMS prefer subdivisions to align with the current version of the Model Bylaws to the best extent possible. The Model Bylaws contain elements that have been approved by INFORMS staff, Subdivisions Council, and INFORMS legal counsel.

The following services are provided to all subdivisions as part of INFORMS’ strong commitment to the health and well being of its subdivisions.
