[Comment-Dnso] Re: NCDNHC Application and Information Form - Another "Sister" organization of the ISOC
Thanks for your comment.
In our application we wrote:
>>>>>Although we are a local, country based, chapter of a global
association which is already a NCDNHC member, we feel we have good reasons
to partecipate directly in the NCDNHC. If this is explictly barred by
NCDNHC by-laws, or felt not convenient by a large number of other members
of this constituency, please let us know.<<<<<
Our point is that local groups should have a way to partecipate directly to
global Internet governance.
Any further comment is welcome
Thank Regards mario
