2021 Board of Trustees Elections
The Internet Society serves a pivotal role in the world as a global leader on Internet policy, technical, economic, and social matters, and as a strong supporter of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Central to our success is the volunteer leadership provided by a dedicated and discerning Board of Trustees. We encourage qualified individuals to consider serving on the board. The Opportunity In 2021, the Internet Society’s Chapters will be asked to elect one member to the board, Organization Members will be asked to elect two members, and the IETF will be asked to appoint two members following the process documented in RFC 3677. One of the two Organization Member seats will include the usual three-year term of office. The other seat was recently filled on a temporary basis after the resignation of a Trustee originally elected for a three-year term in 2019. This seat will include a one-year term. The candidate in the Organization Members election who receives the highest weighted vote count will be seated for a full three-year term, and the candidate with the next highest weighted vote count will be seated for a one-year term. All successful candidates will be asked to participate in a board orientation program after the elections, and all will begin their terms on the board during the Annual General Meeting currently scheduled for July 31 – August 1, 2021.

Internet Society Fundamentals for Chapters
Internet Society members are vital to carrying our message of an open, globally-connected, and secure Internet for all. Because members bring such great value, experience, and knowledge to our organization, we’ve designed a new training program just for them: The Internet Society Fundamentals program. The program was inspired by the great experience we had with 2020 Chapter training program as well as feedback on specific needs, requirements, challenges and the COVID-19 context. Internet Society Fundamentals aims to develop new community leaders equipped to tell data-driven stories about the Internet Society’s key projects. This will equip members to work with their Chapters to create local awareness, extending the reach of our work for an Internet as a force for good.
