iMasons India Chapter Meeting (Virtual)
Infrastructure Masons Overview
Infrastructure Masons (iMasons) is a global, non-profit, professional association of people motivated to make a better-connected world for everyone.
iMasons was established in 2016 on the West coast USA and has grown rapidly in terms of members, stature, and impact – to sustain this growth iMasons have a network of 14 Local Chapters outside the USA – formed in order to scale and support iMasons members worldwide.
Also, there are issues that face the industry that can be better addressed collectively – and iMasons is the platform to coordinate and focus this effort. Global iMasons initiatives, such as driving sustainable growth and bridging the talent gap can be more effectively executed regionally by iMasons who understand the dynamics of that region.
