    Date published: 2 November 2019

    The 66th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will be held on November 2-7 in Montreal, Canada.

    The meeting will focus on showcasing ICANN work to a broader global audience, with more time dedicated to capacity building and leadership training sessions. The AGM is also where new members of ICANN Board of Directors take their seats.

    ICANN meetings are held three times each year in different regions of the globe. They offer the best opportunity for face-to-face discussions. They also offer a variety of sessions such as workshops, open forums and working meetings on the development and implementation of Internet policies.

    ICANN meetings are all about participation, collaboration and finding solutions to the small – and large – problems that the Internet constantly faces. Participants attain a lot of benefits as they understand how Internet policies are created and how the Internet works. They gain knowledge about the main issues facing the Internet today and in the near future. In addition, they enhance ICANN work by participating in all key developments.

    ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and a community with participants from all over the world. ICANN mission is to help ensure a stable, secure and unified global Internet. It assumes, mainly, the responsibility of distributing the fields of addresses in the IP, allocating the protocol identifiers and managing the record system of Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) and Country Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD).
