Representatives from CNI member organizations gather twice annually to explore new technologies, content, and applications; to further collaboration; to analyze technology policy issues; and to catalyze the development and deployment of new projects. Each member organization may send two representatives. Anyone may propose a project briefing, including groups/individuals from non-member institutions and organizations.
Project briefings, 30-minute, 45-minute or one-hour sessions that allow participants to interact informally about projects, initiatives, and ideas of their own choosing, are the very heart of every membership meeting. Plenary sessions are held at the beginning and end of each meeting and include presentations of CNI’s latest initiatives as well as insights from national and international leaders in the networked information community.
Please note that CNI has adopted a code of conduct for all meetings and events hosted by the Coalition:

We do not tolerate personal attacks, harassment of any kind, violence, or disruptive behavior. Please be respectful of our community’s diversity and generous of others’ views. If you have concerns, please talk to a member of the CNI staff. In case of emergency, dial 911.
