The most important here is : if the organization has a fellowship
program or kind of, I suggested to publish it on their website with
details (announcements, requirements, results,...).
AFRINIC, ICANN fellowship program for instance have dedicated pages on
their respective websites.

A fellow is bound to some rules put in place by the organization during
a specific timeline.

Outside fellowship program, it's another story. But I remind you that
when you participate in a debate  during face-to-face meeting (either on
microphone or remotely), you must clearly state your name and your

Even here on mailing-list it could be a good practice if you use an
email address according to your affiliation. Especially if you  send
messages from your corporate email , it should mean you speak on behalf
of that particular organization. When it's not a corporate email, it
depends :)
