ISOC Board Amends By-Laws to Reflect Creation of New Position of Employed President


The Internet Society moves to a new model of governance, whereby “[T]he Chairman of the Society, with the approval of the affirmative vote of at least a majority of the members of the Board of Trustees then in office, shall have the authority to appoint the President of the Society, who shall function as the Society’s Chief Executive Officer and shall be responsible for the day-to-day conduct of the Society’s activities. The President shall perform his duties subject to the direction of the Board of Trustees, and for such compensation and on other terms and conditions as the Board of Trustees shall determine.” The following year, in June 1996, the Board appoints Donald Heath as the Internet Society’s first President under this definition.
