Our regionalization strategy, spearheaded by our Regional Bureaus and organized under our Global Services Department, extends the Internet Society's reach, influence, and reputation as a truly global organization. Our Regional Bureaus build our local relevance and credibility. They strengthen our impact at the ground level, and play a key role in driving a full range of operational activities around policy, technology, capacity building, membership and business development in a manner tailored to local needs and priorities.
Local Collaboration and Engagement
Our Regional Bureaus drive a range of operational initiatives across the full spectrum of our functions and programmes. Each Bureau seeks to prioritize actions and activities that correspond to regional needs. These are complemented by the initiatives of our Chapters, which help to ensure that local Internet-related issues are addressed in a timely, inclusive and meaningful manner.
