Membership Application Principles and Procedures

Membership in the Family Online Safety Institute is determined through an application process whereby applications from prospective members are reviewed first by FOSI’s Executive Committee and then by its full Board of Directors. Generally speaking, FOSI membership is comprised of Internet or telecommunications companies and related trade associations. Individuals and government agencies are not eligible.

To ensure that prospective members are fully supportive of FOSI and have the ability to participate in its work, as part of the application process, applicants are asked to provide a written statement addressing the following topics:

  1. That the company or organization endorses the mission of FOSI and
  2. That prospective members should be able to demonstrate a record of work in the online safety space or;
  3. That a prospective member can demonstrate a willingness to grow in this regard and would like to join FOSI to learn about best practices.

Interested potential members should contact FOSI to apply for membership and provide the written statement of principles outlined above. This statement and application will then go to the FOSI Executive Committee. If the full Executive Committee approves, then the application goes to the full Board of Directors for approval. If there are any objections, then the application goes to the next quarterly Board Meeting for a full discussion and a vote.
