We have seen our membership expand with different kinds of organisations joining us and the initiatives we undertake go beyond just best practice. We’re taking action to solve challenges in the market and create solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts,” said Millet. “Our not-for-profit market database, i3forum Insights, and our numbering plan initiative are examples of our changing role in the market. We are working with more carriers across the globe and expanding our scope to benefit the community.”
