to host Strengthening SLA's Global Visibility: Substance and Culture in
Tunisia, presented by Janice R. Lachance, SLA's Chief Executive Officer.

organizations, private sector, and civil society to find solutions and
reach agreements in the field of Internet governance. 


Come hear Janice discuss the issues which lead to the Summit, the
