DotAsia Community & Membership

DotAsia is a community-based bottom-up initiative, with a membership-based not-for-profit organisation structure. There are 2 types of members defined:

1. Sponsor Members

Sponsor Members shall be organisations in the Pan-Asia and Asia-Pacific region, as defined by ICANN’s Asia / Australia / Pacific Region (based on the ICANN Region definitions) that manage and operate any of the country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) registries in the region.

2. Co-Sponsor Members

Co-Sponsor Members shall be regional-based Internet, Information Technology, Telecommunications, non-profit, NGO or other relevant community organizations in the Pan-Asia and Asia-Pacific region.

The boundaries of the DotAsia community are defined based on the ICANN Asia / Australia / Pacific region (, within an inclusive approach in mind. To ensure that the Board of Directors is relevant and representative of the multicultural Pan-Asia and Asia-Pacific region, geographical diversity will be an important criterion for the selection of the Directors. This geographical diversity requirement will be enforced and at least one individual from each of the 4 Sub-Regions will be represented on the Board.

The DotAsia Sub-Regions are defined as the following 4 Areas: 1. North & Northeast Asia; 2. South & Southeast Asia; 3. Middle East & West Asia; and, 4. Australasia & Pacific. The included economies and countries along with the corresponding categorization are based on the following 3 sources:

DotAsia membership remains open to new members. Members value contributing to the governance of the .Asia Sponsored gTLD registry as a key benefit. All Sponsor Members or Co-Sponsor Members enjoy the same benefits and are treated equally no matter when they join, so eligible organisations may join the initiative at their own pace.

As DotAsia continues its outreach to recruit members from the region, these efforts will also help further the community mandate of the organisation as well as to help bring local constituencies into the regional and international Internet community and forums.

DotAsia Organisational Structure

The Board of Directors oversee the governance of the organization and are advised on policy matters by an [Advisory Council] populated by one representative from each Co-Sponsor Members along with other industry and community experts in the region.

The direct and close involvement of many regional ccTLDs ensures a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the operational and policy management of a TLD registry in the Pan-Asia and Asia-Pacific region.

Maureen HILYARD, Board Chair

Maureen HILYARDMaureen Hilyard’s (SOI) former career was in primary teaching which led to moving to the NZ Correspondence School (TCS) in 1989. She started at a time when the internet was first being introduced to connect distance learners with their teachers, based at the school in Wellington. Her role as a Regional Representative based in Auckland was to introduce distance learners – from preschool to adults, including people with disabilities – to the “virtual classroom”. After 15 years with TCS, Maureen moved to the Cook Islands Ministry of Education in 2004 as a distance learning facilitator. This required working with the local telecom to connect the 13 outer islands schools to the internet; negotiating with TCS to redesign their programmes to meet the needs of distance learners of another culture; and training government Ministry personnel and school staff on technical and governance issues relating to the internet as a communication and learning tool.

Maureen joined the Internet Society following her first PacINET in Samoa in 2006 where she met Vince Cerf whose continued support has been a real asset for internet development in the Pacific. She coordinated a PacINET in 2008 on Rarotonga, and joined the PICISOC Board in 2009. She was their Board Chair from 2011-2014 with her main focus being to advocate for global support for affordable and sustainable internet connectivity in the Pacific.

Maureen attended her first IGF as a Fellow with the Diplo Foundation at Hyderabad in 2008, and then was an ISOC Ambassador at Sharm el Sheik in 2009. She helped to coordinate the first Pacific IGF in Noumea in 2011 as well as a number of PacINET meetings and training workshops in various Pacific countries during her term on the Board. She attended previous APrIGFs in Japan (2012) and Korea (2013). In 2014 she was selected as a Pacific participant in a Policy Diplomacy programme organised by the Diplo Foundation. In 2015 she represented the Pacific to work with other Asian NGOs and CSOs to put together and submit the Asia-Pacific WSIS+10 Non-paper to the UN.

She attended her first ICANN meeting as a Fellow in 2010 in Cartegena and became involved in At-Large policy development up until her next meeting in Costa Rica in 2012. She became the ccNSO Liaison to the ALAC in 2013 when she was elected onto the ALAC. Maureen is currently in her second term on the ALAC representing the Asian, Australasian and Pacific Islands Organisation (APRALO). She is a member of the ALAC Leadership Team.

On Rarotonga, she is the President of the Cook Islands Internet Action Group which lobbies government about internet issues and supports IT graduates to undertake projects in their interest areas. She is a member of the Telecommunications Advisory Committee which meets with the Minister to advise him about internet and telecommunications issues.

Maureen’s day job is a development consultant mainly working with the Development Cooperation (Aid) Division of the Ministry of Finance. She is the UNESCO Commissioner for Information and Communication. Development projects she have managed were attached to the Office of the Prime Minister (eGovernment), the National Environment Service (Hazardous chemicals) and the Ministry of Internal Affairs (Gender equality and women’s economic empowerment).
