FDPPI Invites Participation

FDPPI invites interested persons who want to join this movement of Data Protection Professionals.

Persons interested need to first become “Donors”. Out of the Donors, those who donate Rs 5000/- and above can exercise the option to become “Members” who will have voting rights as well as participate in the management of the Company as members of the Governing Council.

Initial members of the Governing Council would be “Nominated”. Once the membership reaches a critical level and not later than the first annual meeting of members, the members of the Governing Council would be elected by members in a due process of election.

The Regional Governing Councils will have a maximum of 9 members and initially 5 members may be inducted by nomination.

On 29th of September 2018, a physical meeting of the proposed members is taking place in Bangalore. Subsequently similar meetings may be held elsewhere.

During the meeting, Naavi would explain the objectives of the Company and its proposed management structure and initiate action to enrol members.

Interested persons may request for membership application form by sending an e-mail request as per e-mail details available in the contact page.

FDPPI is born today

I have great pleasure in announcing that the Foundation of Data Protection Professionals of India has formally come into existence today with the completion of the process of registration and allotment of the CIN/TNI/PAN numbers.

The Company is registered as a Section 8 Company limited by shares.

The activities of the Company will be managed by a Central Governing Council and supported by the Regional Governing Councils in major cities such as Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi. There may not be a Regional Council in Bangalore since the Central General Council will take care of the activities in Bangalore. A decision on whether we need a separate Regional Council for Bangalore may be considered later.

Each General Council is expected to have a President, Vice President and other Activity Group leaders. All designations are honorary.

I look forward to volunteers to take this initiative forward. There are some minor additional formalities to be completed which may take a couple of days.

We will then pen up membership registers to get members in first as “Subscribers” to the services of FDPPI and then those who are willing can opt to become “Members” with gives them entitlement to participate as Governing Council members.

Some of these details have been shared with those who have earlier registered as provisional members. But now a formal issue of the membership rules and procedures for admission would be released.

Please watch out for more information through these columns.
