For those of you who have not heard of it, IASA is the International Association of Software Architects.  It is dedicated to the goals of networking, knowledge, advocacy and ethics in the practice of IT Architects.

On Friday I had lunch with Bhaskar Chakrabarti who is the head of the Chicago Chapter.  It sounds like things are getting ready to fire up.  He is looking to have the first official meeting in July or August and hopes to have a well recognized speaker for the event.

If you are in Chicago or its suburbs and are an architect or have an interest in architecture please go to the site and sign up.  Right now membership is free so you have nothing to lose.  I'll post more as things get solidified.
