A prestigious point of reference for the community
LACNIC promotes an open call for candidates to elect a new Policy Development Process moderator for the region. All members of the community with an interest in promoting changes and improvements to Internet policies for Latin America and the Caribbean may run for the position.*
The increasing development of the Internet community has led to greater participation in Internet policy forums and discussions and has turned forum moderators into prestigious points of reference when considering changes to the policies currently in force.
Moderators are seen as involved and highly valued members of the community who are well-informed on current issues.
A moderator’s image is that of an activist, always ready to help and invite those wanting to participate. Likewise, moderators have great visibility, as their role consists of encouraging and moderating discussions on the Public Policy List as well as during the Public Policy Forum which takes place during LACNIC events.
Moderators participate in LACNIC’s two annual events in Latin America and the Caribbean and are also invited to at least one meeting of another Regional Internet Registry, where they can see how these forums are managed and network with other communities.
Becoming a moderator of LACNIC’s Policy Forum is a great opportunity which requires dedication and commitment but which is also very rewarding.
