ISOC Board Establishes Principles for Chartering of Internet Society Chapters


With Resolution 1994-13, the Internet Society Board of Trustees establishes the principles that will enable the growth of Internet Society Chapters, which will consist of local groups of Internet Society members and will go on to play a significant role in advancing the Internet Society’s values globally. As of December 2013, there will be 100 Internet Society Chapters throughout the world.

Chapters bring together individual members who share an interest and belief in the Internet Society’s principles and mission and who are committed to furthering the Internet Society’s goals and objectives in their local environments. Chapter members form communities that assume responsibility for a variety of programmes and activities, while also comprising a larger, global community—as many graduates of Internet Society workshops and training programs also help found Internet Society Chapters of their own.
