CSSL chapters are to provide a platform for CSSL members to enhance their professional interest working in a group of professionals with similar interests. Chapters would help CSSL to make more opportunities for the members to contribute, expand membership, and to strengthen CSSL activities and its presence among professionals. Chapter members will collectively decide on the professional activities to be carried out by each chapter and members taking the responsibility to implement the activities will form the chapter leadership team, who will coordinate with CSSL Chapters Project Chairperson. Following is a brief description of the existing/proposed chapters.

CSSL has formed a Young IT Professionals chapter to provide a forum for the young IT Professionals to improve and share knowledge on specific subject matters by organizing workshops, educational programs, publications, newsletters, etc. The forum can also discuss issues pertaining to this segment specifically and also do activities that help each other.
The youth is the future of any industry. Thus, the CSSL would like to create opportunities for young people to come forward and take a leadership role. With this in mind, we are rolling out a Young IT Professionals chapter in Sri Lanka.
