Dear ICANN Board of Directors:

I am writing to express my support for the Internet Society's (ISOC) bid to manage the .ORG registry. As a user and supporter of the Internet, I believe that a successful Internet Society bid would be good for .ORG and for the Internet as a whole.

ISOC has long led activities that contribute to an open, stable, thriving Internet. ISOC organizes its many talented members to serve the Internet through initiatives in education and training, standards and protocols, and public policy. Additionally, ISOC supports and facilitates open mechanisms that enable consensus on key Internet development issues.

Further, I believe that ISOC's mission of promoting "the open development, evolution, and use of the Internet for the benefit of all the people in the world" is in full harmony with the purpose of .ORG, and that ISOC will make an effective steward for the domain. Working with its talented membership and with its technical partners, ISOC will enable .ORG to flourish as a truly global home for noncommercial interests on the Internet.

I urge you to consider the Internet Society's proposal favorably, and help appoint the Internet Society as the next registry manager of .ORG.

Sincerely yours,
[your name]
[your country]
[your .ORG domain if you have one]
