On Tuesday, April 3rd the Internet Society’s New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) will meet with new North American Regional Bureau Director of the Internet Society, Paul Brigner. Paul has worked on policy at Verizon, and is the former CTO of the Motion Picture Association of the America (MPAA), in both of which roles he has advocated positions that might not absolutely concur with the prevailing outlook at the Chapter. He is also an active member of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
This will be an opportunity to talk to Paul about his views, ways in which the global organization can build better working relationships with its Chapters, and means of furthering ISOC’s mission of promoting an Open Internet.
Questions can be submitted in advance to Paul by emailing ISOC-NY President David Solomonoff at firstname.lastname@example.org
