dotAfrica Steering Committee

The Steering Committee (SteerCom) is built on a multi-stakeholder model and comprises a diverse grouping of individuals and organisations that participate on a voluntary basis. The SteerCom has been established to provide leadership and oversight over both the application process and the launch of the dotAfrica TLD, as well as to provide a vehicle through which the broader African community may participate in the dotAfrica project. The SteerCom is also the precursor to the dotAfrica Foundation that will oversee various developmental projects and initiatives relating to the African Internet and domain name industries.

"Members of the dotAfrica Steering Committee have been selected by the African Internet community and consist of African Internet experts, Country Code managers, Registrars and other volunteers who have a shared vision of a better Internet for Africa. Africa’s new top-level domain (dotAfrica) will be utilised as a mechanism to promote the development of Africa’s Internet services and ecosystem, and to showcase African pride, identity and know-how."
