The Internet Society International is a non-profit organisation founded in 1992 to provide leadership in Internet related standards, education and policy; and dedicated to ensuring the open development, evolution and use of the Internet for the benefit of people throughout the world. The Internet Society operates through sponsored events, developing-country training workshops, public policy, and regional and local Chapters such as ours. The Internet Society recognises our Chapter creation as being crucial to represent the needs of the growing global Internet community in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Regional Internet Governance Forum in Trinidad and Tobago will provide a space for multistakeholder dialogue between governments, the private sector, the technical community, academia and civil society organisations to collaboratively discuss Internet Governance issues in our Region.
Membership in the Trinidad and Tobago Chapter of the Internet Society is open to anyone who uses the Internet or who are interested in the social, technical and governance issues arising from the Internet. We conduct regular meetings and maintain mailing lists for members.
