NIRI Chapters are extensions of NIRI National. While chapters operates with operational
autonomy, they are legally part of NIRI National. Chapters operate under NIRI’s tax-exempt status and must comply with federal regulations concerning tax-exempt organizations.
Chapter assets, including bank accounts, are the property of NIRI National and chapter treasury balances are included in NIRI’s annual audited financial statements and federal tax return. In other words, NIRI shares the successes and failures of its chapters, and vice versa. For this reason, NIRI and its chapters must work together to operate in a cohesive manner.
Chapters are critical to carrying out NIRI’s mission. Chapters can provide an effective means for:

  • Professional interaction with colleagues.
  • Advanced continuing education.
  • Engaging in advocacy.
  • Supporting those seeking and maintaining the IRC credential.
  • Problem-solving.
  • Discussion of professional issues.


NIRI is committed to the success of its Chapters. As part of that commitment, NIRI provides a variety of resources, tools, and services to Chapters.
