POISED95 Process Clarifies the Relationship Between ISOC and the IETF

30 March 1996

Following the efforts of the Internet Engineering Task Force’s original Process for the Organization of Internet Standards Working Group (POISED), which concluded in 1994, the IETF formed the POISED95 working group in July 1995 to resolve, among other issues, the link between the IETF and the Internet Society. POISED95 concludes in March 1996, and the  documents that come out of that process—RFC 2026RFC 2027RFC 2028, and RFC 2031—contribute to the clarification, formalization, and codification of the relationship between ISOC, the IAB, and the IETF.
