• Roshini Peter has recently become the first APTLD Executive Fellow to explore a leading registry's best practices.   APTLD benefits from its unique georgraphic position which enables us to send our Members reps across 2/3 of the globe. Yet more beneficial is the network of great friends we developed over years. Many thanks to SIDN and its leadership for hosting Roshini Peter - looking at her smile no one would dare claim it has been a depressing experience. Nor do the hosts look unhappy, which means she did very well : ) (36 Photos)
