Standing Group/Special Interest Groups (SG/SIGs) are an opportunity for Internet Society members to collaborate on and find solutions for topics of interest that are not necessarily addressed directly by the projects under the Internet Society Action Plan.


Membership of the Accessibility Standing Group is open to all Internet Society Members. To join the Internet Society visit - it's free!


The Internet Society Accessibility Standing Group was formed on November 1 2021, subsequent to ISOC's plan to de-charter existing Special Interest Groups. While the new SIGs are temporary and project-based, both Accessibility and Youth, as Standing Groups, are permanent.

The former Accessibility SIG (A11ySIG) was de-chartered, and reverted to its origin as an Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) project, in a supporting role to the new Standing Group, as well as other activities.
