The Family Online Safety Institute is widely acknowledged as the organization of choice for those who are serious about their corporate social responsibilities and believe that family online safety is the key to a better Internet.
Membership of the Family Online Safety Institute will give you access to a wide range of unique events, resources and services. It will also provide you with a seat on the Members Group and a highly-visible presence.
Membership in the Family Online Safety Institute is determined through an application process whereby applications from prospective members are reviewed first by FOSI’s Board of Directors and then by FOSI's Members Group. Generally speaking, FOSI membership consists of technology, Internet, IoT or telecommunications companies and related trade associations. Individuals and government agencies are not eligible.
To apply for membership, please provide a written statement addressing each of the following topics:
1. That your company or organization endorses the mission of FOSI and…
2. That your company or organization is able to demonstrate a record of work in the online safety space or…
3. That your company or organization can demonstrate a willingness to grow in this regard, and would like to join FOSI to learn and implement best practices.
Completed membership application statements should be sent to Stephen Balkam email@example.com
as a PDF formatted attachment. The application will then be shared with the FOSI Board for a preliminary vote. If the Board has no objections, then the application will be shared with FOSI Members Group for approval. If there are any objections, then the application goes to the next quarterly Board Meeting for a full discussion and a vote. Applicants will be notified once a decision is made, or if any additional information is needed for a decision to be made.
