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.

Jose Emmanuel DISINI

Jose Emmanuel DISINIJose Emmanuel DISINI (SOI) – I was born and raised in the Manila, Philippines. I moved to California in 1980 to study, and graduated in 1984 from Caltech, specializing in Computer Science. I found work in Silicon Valley, working on the Macintosh, which had then just been released, writing networking software. In 1990 I moved back to Manila, founded one of the first ISPs here, and became the ccTLD for .PH. I’ve been in the Domain Industry for 30 years.

Transparency and Accountability to its members – that is what I would like to see. DotAsia is a $2M/year business and there needs to be more transparency about how this money is spent. Wasteful expenses should be eliminated, and most importantly, Funds should go only towards projects that are approved by the members, and that benefit the countries and goals of the membership. That is what I promise to work towards.

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).
