International .Net Association (INETA)

International .Net Association The International .NET Association provides structured, peer-based organizational, educational, and promotional support to the growing worldwide community of Microsoft® .NET user groups. Our mission is to offer assistance and resources to community groups that promote and educate their membership in Microsoft's .NET technologies. INETA welcomes all facets of the .NET user community, from developers and architects to project managers and IT professionals. Members can be user groups or special interest groups that:
Focus on a single aspect of .NET, such as C# Target the entire .NET platform Concentrate on other development technologies but are also interested in .NET 

INETA is the next evolution in user group communities – a non-profit, independent organization, chartered with supporting all user groups interested in the Microsoft .NET platform. INETA is run by a board of user group leaders, elected by their peers, and supported by Microsoft Corporation and other sponsors. 

The Northern Virginia SQL Server Users Group is an official INETA Chapter.
