The future is about the challenge of a constantly changing environment in which the internet may well be markedly different. These changes are driven by technology / digital developments as well as the political, economic, and societal environment that impact the use of the internet locally and globally.

They will be clear and fluid communicators who provide clarity of purpose, and lead by example. They will provide collegiate leadership for and role model auDA’s values.
