The Internet Society's regional bureaus are a focal point for ISOC's regional activities, including policy, education, membership, and Chapter activities.
Bureaus fulfill a dual purpose, helping to focus ISOC's strategic initiatives within regional contexts, while simultaneously informing ISOC's global awareness of differing regional needs and priorities.
The bureaus are integral hubs in ISOCs work, helping to build capacity where it is needed, mobilize local support for global efforts, and develop policy and educational awareness. They serve as vital conduits, interconnecting ISOC's staff, Chapters, organizational, and individual members around topical regional issues. Bureaus are instrumental in building awareness of ISOC's commitment to regional Internet communities and understanding and addressing local issues important to Internet development.
