The Internet has become one of the biggest drivers of the global economy, a hub for social interaction and mobilization efforts, and an indispensable tool for everyday life. 

One of the key organizations that keeps the Internet secure, stable, and interoperable is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). While ICANN performs a very important technical function, it is also a forum for stakeholders from across the world to meet and develop the policies that make the Internet what it is today.

There are many ways to get involved at ICANN, but getting started can be daunting. Luckily, ICANN has newcomer programs to help you begin your journey. Learn how you can utilize your education, background, and knowledge to help form the Internet of the next decade.

During this webinar, aimed at the North American community, you will have the opportunity to hear first-person experiences from two ICANN program alumni. In addition, our staff will explain each of the newcomer programs to help you determine which program best meets your needs. 

Join us and don’t miss this opportunity to shape the future of the Internet!
