    Currently, I see many of the individual members and chapters are hardly interacting with each other due to limited resources and other constrains. Also, lack of common ground maybe another factor that prevents further communication between them. Thus, I think ISOC should first identify common grounds for members and chapters to talk, and then provide support to those members or chapters in key regions to ISOC’s future development.

    I fully support the sphere project and I see beneficial changes and outcomes coming from this project.
    It is not me as trustee to initiate changes, but me to enable them and support the people working in the sphere project.

    I would like to see more interaction between organizational members and chapters. Many organizational members are well know at the local level than the chapter. Those org members should give more support to local chapters. Support may not be only financial, but by developing collaboration on local sustainable projects that will help chapters to count on this sustainable revenue in working on its projects.
    I just been informed by our colleague in the Palestinian chapter about a training they organized with the help of people from Google for the benefit of developers and enterprise working with Google API. This is a good example to be followed.
