Internet Society Establishes North American Bureau

January 2010

The Internet Society’s Regional Bureau in North American is opened in Washington, DC. The Bureau focuses on engagement and consultation with policymakers on issues such as US and Canadian strategies to increase high-speed Internet access, promoting Internet innovation, and confronting the challenges of the digital economy; serving as an important voice encouraging continued commitment to private-sector leadership, a collaborative approach to technology development, and the free flow of information online; and developing partnerships that demonstrate strong support for principles of openness and bottom-up decision-making in the regional policy dialogue.
