Help NIRA host AFRINIC-27

AFRINIC holds two open public policy meetings every year in various locations throughout its service region. The AFRINIC Meetings provide a unique opportunity for Internet-related individuals and organisations to gather and to discuss the policies governing Internet number resource distribution in the African region, to share technical knowledge, and to attend workshops and tutorials.

The first meeting of each year is held during the Africa Internet Summit (AIS). The annual AIS is a regional multi-stakeholder ICT conference which brings together Africa's ICT business and technical community to discuss regional and global ICT issues and challenges. The AIS is organised jointly by AFRINIC and AfNOG. An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is also held during the first AFRINIC Meeting of each year.

The second meeting in each year is a stand-alone meeting, dubbed the Public Policy meeting. NIRA will be hosting the 2017 Public Policy Meeting, tagged AFRINIC-27 in Lagos from 27th November 2017 to 2nd December 2017. A typical AFRINIC meeting can have up to 400 attendees.

My appeal is that all NIRA stakeholders should key into the program of activities for the Meeting. There are sponsorship opportunities, Workshops, Trainings and Tutorials on Internet Governance, Internet Number Resources Management, IPV6 etc. that will be of immense benefit to everyone.

If you do want to be a part of this event, please do not hesitate to contact the NIRA Secretariat.

Let’s do it!!


I remain at your service.
