Webinar DC Washington

What Every Non-profit Organization Should Know About Its Use of the Internet and Never Dared to Ask!"

Time and Date: January 14, 2015; 10:00am EST

Place: On the web and on site at the ICANN Offices, Washington DC, 801 17th Street, NW, Suite 400

The Internet has become a critical tool for organizations to carry out their mission and vision. The Pathfinder series has been developed to assist non-profits and non-governmental organizations in using this tool effectively and understanding the context in which the Internet operates. The security and stability of the Internet depend on the active involvement of all stakeholders.

The need for dialogue and education is highlighted by the United States government’s announcement of its intention to relinquish control of the Internet’s numbering system known as IANA. The IANA numbers are behind the names that non-profits depend upon for their Internet presence. How will this change effect your organization? Does it matter? Please join us for a lively and information discussion.
