The Inland Islands Society is one of our regional societies. Its primary mission is to develop and implement programs that enable individuals and sub-national organizations from lake island communities and river island communities to more fully participate in international relations. Specifically, the society develops and implements programs that provide women, ethnic minorities, and the next generation of leaders from these island communities with the knowledge, networks, platforms, and exposure required to realize their full potential as artists, athletes, chefs, designers, educators, musicians, nurses, scholars, policymakers, scientists, and technologists on the world stage.
