Meetings & Activities

  • Capacity Building

Presentation: Joint NCSG/ALAC

  • Members’ Session

NPOC’s member session encourage  all attendees to participate, with many of them asking about how they can get involved in the Policy Committee and help NPOC to contribute to to policy making.  There were 8 people who signed up. The ExCom, in its due diligence, formally sent a call for volunteers on the NPOC Discuss list.

This is a historic moment in NPOC’s journey, where a Policy Committee will be formed with experts on the Internet Governance and operational issues that will educate and engage members in the policy development process.
