New Era for Communities

DIA is a global member association that provides knowledge resources across the full spectrum of medical product development. In the last few years the organization has expanded that global reach and will continue to grow to meet the need for health care knowledge exchange around the world.

As DIA’s reach expands globally we believe a name change is necessary. Our global volunteers came to consensus on "Community" to replace "SIACs." This change will enhance the visibility of the groups and make it much easier to recognize their purpose.

Each Community is led by a chairperson who is responsible for the overall activities of the Community. View complete list of Community chairpersons.
