The Bylaws of The American Iris Society do not require that AIS Board
members and chairpersons belong to their local society/affiliate.  There is
also no requirement that accredited judges belong to their local
The AIS MemSec or the regional MemSec usually assigns new members to an
affiliate/society due to geographical boundaries.  In my home region, Region
4, this is our policy.  However, even though I am a Charter member of Region
4 as it is currently geographically boundaried, and as a Charter Member of
the Easter North Carolina Iris Society (Affiliate), there are many names on
our rosters that I have never seen at any of our meetings nor have I seen
them participate in regional or local activities.
It is the personal decision of the individual Board Member, Committee
Chairperson, or Accredited Judge as to their being a member (active or
passive) of their local society/affiliate.

Or anyone,

Is it a policy that AIS board and chairpersons belong to their local group?
What about judges?

At the moment do they all belong and support  their local AIS iris

If it is not, why?
