Take It From Members Testimonials on the i2Coalition annual Fly-In and membership.
“I have been participating in the i2Coalition Fly-In events for years, with the size and scope increasing every year. During the 2015 fly-in we had 16 meetings in 2 days and the experience was amazing. All of the Senators, Congressmen and staffers we met with were interested and engaged with what we had to say. It is due to the efforts of the i2Coalition that the Internet Infrastructure Industry has a voice in policy.”
“As a leader in cloud backup for websites, CodeGuard has tens of thousands of customers, and major concerns and opinions related to data privacy and government policy that would impact our relationship with those customers. We enjoy being members of the i2Coalition because it allows us to have a voice, jointly with publicly traded companies with extensive legal teams, that ultimately reaches Capitol Hill. This is a benefit we would never have without the i2Coalition.”
“It has been amazing to me seeing how much influence our members have had on the legislative process as a result of the fly-ins. Explaining how the Internet and Hosting world actually works and conveying the impact of legislation on that world has had a dramatic impact on Washington.”
“The i2Coalition’s Fly-In events provide a rare opportunity for Internet industry leaders to speak directly with each other about the issue facing our industry but also with legislation and policy makers in a roundtable format. There is no better way to secure this industry’s future. I try to attend as many of them as I can.”
“Even though Blacknight is an Irish based company, there is value in discussing with the US Government how it influences global issues like government access to data, Safe Harbor and the IANA Transition. Opportunities like this from the i2Coalition are tremendous in preserving the international internet we all know and love.”
“i2Coalition coordinated events are an excellent way to interact with professionals equally passionate about the issues that face our businesses. Via an open, collaborative approach, our industry’s information is translated into specific actions and recommendations -many of which have made meaningful legislative and policy impact. Participation provides access to those with a ‘seat at the table’ and a forum for making constructive change.”
“I have seen first hand how our coalition makes a difference. Visits to Capitol Hill like this result in positive change that benefits small and medium businesses in the US and the rest of the world. Our discussions with congressional and senate leaders serves as an educational resource to help our leaders better understand the complex issues on which they are required to make decisions.”
“As a first timer at the i2Coalition Fly-In, I didn’t know what to expect. The i2Coalition set up appointments with key legislators on Capitol Hill, provided talking points to drive a bipartisan agenda, and guided attendees on how to best communicate our points. It was great to see industry leaders come together and put competitive differences aside for the benefit of the industry as a whole. I will definitely be back next year.”
“The opportunity to educate politicians, provide feedback on important industry related issues and gather with one the brightest group of leaders in the hosting industry, makes the i2Coalition’s fly-ins one of my most important trips of the year.”
