It’s About Your Voice
The Internet Society is a cause-driven organization. While the Internet Society is not a membership-driven organization, we have a growing number of members and Chapters. The articles of incorporation, bylaws, and behavior of the Internet Society have been, are, and are expected to remain that of a cause-based organization. Because of our compelling cause, a growing number of Chapters and members have chosen to join the Internet Society to share our mission and to promote the open development, evolution, and use of the Internet for the benefit of all people throughout the world.
