One Internet. One Society. One Meeting.

An Interactive global event of the Internet Society on 21 September 2016.

Help us celebrate the power of our community as we bring our members together for conversations on the issues we all care deeply about – connecting the unconnected and increasing trust in the Internet.

ISOC-NY is proud to be an Interactive Node! We'll have full audio and video interactivity with all of the other Interactive Nodes.

Joining us in NY is Toral Cowieson, ISOC's Senior Director of Internet Leadership, who will address the global meeting via our node.

This is a great opportunity for ISOC-NY members to ask questions of the global community and of ISOC members!

Toral will stick around for a bit after the InterCommunity event to speak with our chapter and answer any other questions.

Space is limited but all ISOC-NY members are invited to attend. Please RSVP to ensure your seat.

If you can't make it in person, remote participation ( is also available.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.
