About Us


The Web Association is a non-profit group of Internet Professionals and Business Leaders focused on providing Leadership, Education, and Networking opportunities to the region’s Internet Community.

The Web Association is Ohio’s oldest and most respected Internet Professionals Association, having its roots as the Cleveland Chapter of the Association of Internet Professionals (AIP).



Each month at the Web Association events, we bring together great speakers and panelists to discuss the latest topics in web design and online marketing. But we know that the Internet doesn’t sleep between our events, so we wanted to share some of our favorite blogs with you to tide you over between events.

The website committee was established to plan and guide the newly redesigned website in partnership with WRIS, our development partner. But as we all know, a website is never finished. The website committee both maintains the current site content and brainstorms new features that could be added to the site to improve functionality. If you would like to help with site updates and/or participate in quarterly brainstorming, please contact any board member.
