The Greater Washington D.C. Chapter of the Internet Society is the official title of Internet Society's US Washington DC Chapter, usually abbreviated to ISOC-DC.

ISOC-DC is a membership organization, incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit, that seeks to further the mission of the Internet Society (ISOC) in the District-Maryland-Northern Virginia metropolitan area by serving as a hub for discussion, education, and action.

ISOC-DC's guiding principle is that Chapter shall be governed and operated at all times in a manner that will foster a decentralized structure that leverages the expertise, energy, and participation of the Chapter’s membership, and seeks to minimize topdown centralized governance of the Chapter
