ISOC Switzerland Chapter Statement: No Change of Control of PIR/.ORG
The Swiss Chapter of the Internet Society has taken note that there will be no change of control of PIR/.ORG. We welcome that a decision has been made in this matter and the continued stewardship of .ORG by PIR.
The decision is in line with ISOC Switzerland’s recommendation published on 14th February 2019, in which we underlined that this sort of sale should not go forward without prior open consultation and without making publicly available all relevant information.
Now, our focus is on working with our fellow chapters, ISOC management and the ISOC Board to strengthen the local chapters, improve the ISOC governance structure, increase transparency and facilitate consultation processes.
