Contributed by: Yvonne Lim

With over 80 per cent of people in Singapore using the Internet, it’s easy to assume that there isn’t a lot to do to when comes the future of the Internet or the web.

That’s simply not the case for the Internet Society’s new Chapter in Singapore.

The Chapter, which was given approval this June, says there’s a lot of exciting work left to do when it comes to the future of the Internet in Singapore. It’s focusing its efforts on the promotion of technology and applications to help organizations and individuals work together and develop Singapore’s unique voice.

Its objectives are:

  • To Advance and promote the use of the Internet and its associated technologies and applications, and as a means of enabling organisations, professions, and individuals worldwide to more effectively collaborate, cooperate, and innovate in their respective fields and interests in Singapore.
  • Cover the engagement of a wide range of Internet educational initiatives
  • Promote the expansion of Internet access at all levels of the local community and provide forums for professional networking and knowledge sharing.

 

It also aims to help with the recruitment and job market development in local technology industries as well as develop and lead initiatives for the expansion of broad community access and infrastructure development.

The Chapter will be established as a non-profit organisation under the laws of Singapore.

As we are young and new, we welcome comments and feedback. If you’re interested in getting involved, please email them at yvonnelyc@ntu.edu.sg .
