PacINET@NetHui 2015, Auckland, New Zealand

Thursday 8 July, 2015

This year PacINET has established a collaborative PacINET@NetHui with the kind support of  InternetNZ whose NetHui which is being held at the Sky City Convention Centre in Auckland, NZ.  This could set a trend for PacINETs as the Board attempts to find the best opportunities for training, knowledge building and networking for our PICISOC Members.  This year’s NetHui has been enhanced by the presence of the Board of Trustees of the Internet Society who are holding their Annual General Meeting at this event and at the same time are coordinating an Intercommunity2015 Event which involved Chapter hubs from all around the world (in over 100 countries) joining together to celebrate the internet and to show the support that ISOC has within their chapter organisations.

Maureen Hilyard of the PICISOC Board presented the annual report to the ISOC Board of Trustees and was able to raise and discuss some concerns that we have in the Pacific with regards to helping ISOC achieve its goals in the region.  Board Chair, Jackson Miake, participated in one of the panels at Intercommunity2015 again raising important capacity building issues that impact on the development of the internet in the Pacific.
