Community Forum - Internet Governance issues @ 7th October

To the Communities of the Internet Society;

As you all know, the events of 2014 on Internet Governance will ripple far into the future.  On the heels of the Net Mundial Conference last April, and the IGF this past month, is the ITU Plenipotentiary meeting in Busan, Korea beginning in less than three weeks.  Many of you have been participating in activities locally, regionally and globally to assure that the Open Internet and multistakeholder governance model are preserved as a result of the ITU conference well into the future.  Many others of you want and need to know what this all means.


In our efforts to bring our Communities into ever closer alignment on these issues, with a view to the extended future, ISOC CEO Kathy Brown and Vice President for Public Policy Sally Wentworth will hold a Community Forum where they will offer an over-the-horizon view of the key Internet Governance issues in order to stimulate discussion on this critically important topic.


Tuesday, October 7,  13:00  - 14:30 UTC
