Thanks Bishakha for sharing this, I wasn't aware of this.

I am thinking about it since quite a while and I guess the community
here could help me to get an opinion on it:
Wouldn't it be sensible for Wikimedia Chapters to become members of
their local ISOC chapters?
ISOC has chapters in many countries and a similar structure like
Wikimedia, with geographical chapter organisation (well, there is ISOC
Belgium + ISOC Wallonia...) and I think the ISOC would be a good entry
into engaging in internet governance.

Are there any chapters which are ISOC members? I only heard once about
WMIL cooperating with ISOC IL so far.
