About the Internet Society Geneva Chapter


The Geneva Chapter members are a group of Internet enthusiasts with all levels of expertise from diverse backgrounds in and around Geneva. We want to share Internet experiences of individuals, organizations and companies in the Rhone valley corridor from the Suisse Romande and the Savoie areas. In this way we will maintain awareness of Internet developments and add our energy in shaping its application in the Geneva area. Our objectives are to provide users with information on exploring, using and contributing to the Internet.

The Geneva Chapter was inaugurated in April 1995, and formally founded as a Swiss Association in June 1995. This was the first Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC) to be established in Europe. Please review our Articles of Association for more details.
