i2Coalition and The Domain Name Association Merge
Together the two groups will form the DNA Working Group, the largest infrastructure advocacy group in North America. The two groups will now operate under i2Coalition’s name and will use its existing management structure. 

The DNA will continue working on the mission of empowering and education businesses on the importance, benefits, and opportunities of domain names. 

“The mission of the DNA has always been to spread awareness, promote growth, offer resources and facilitate communication about innovation and value in the Internet domain name space,” added Statton Hammock, founding DNA Board member and current Board Secretary. “Our mission aligns well with that of the i2Coalition, and I look forward to remaining part of the new organization and to creating an even larger impact.”
