The Chair called the meeting to order at 4:04 p.m. EDT. The presence of a quorum was noted. The Chair acknowledged regrets received.

2. Agenda Review

The Chair reviewed the Agenda with the Council and called for any comments. There were no comments.

3. Approval of the Minutes

It was moved by AW, and seconded by AM, that:

“The ARIN Advisory Council approves the Minutes of 19 September 2019, as written.”

The Chair called for any objections. There were no objections.

The motion carried with all in favor.

AM stated that there were no changes to this policy and it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM). She noted that the presentation slides were ready and submitted.

KH stated that there were no changes to this policy, and that it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM). She noted that the presentation slides were ready and submitted.

AT stated that there were no changes to this policy, and that it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM). She noted that the presentation slides were ready and submitted.

DF was experiencing technical difficulties. The Chair stated this item would be moved to the end of the agenda to give him time to resolve the issue.

KR stated that there were no changes to this policy, and that it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM). She stated that her slides are submitted, but she needed to amend them, and she will make the changes. She thanked DF for his assistance.

JP stated that due to considerations at the AC’s last meeting, a note was posted to the Public Policy Mailing List (PPML) by DF. The feedback has been mainly positive, but there are still comments being received. They will consolidate feedback in the slide presentation. JP did not believe a staff and legal review could be done before the PPM.

AP stated that she had intended to abandon this policy, but folks are chatting on the PPML about it, and she believed it beneficial to have discussion in Austin about the policy, and then decide in November.

CW stated that he is currently at RIPE 79, and is to provide the ARIN Update. He asked if it was appropriate to mention the most recent staff and legal opinion on this policy. The President stated that CW was providing the ARIN Update in his stead, as he could not attend the meeting, and thanked him for doing so. He stated that JP may not have enough time available to provide details and, customarily, a general overview is provided. The President advised that if someone asks for it, JP can respond, otherwise provide the overview. The Chair agreed.

AD stated that there were no changes to this policy, and that it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM). Slides are being prepared and will be submitted shortly.

12. Draft Policy ARIN-2019-17: Returned Addresses to the 4.10 Reserved Pool

AW stated that there were no changes to this policy, and that it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM). Slides are ready. She appreciated AD’s feedback and will address items during the PPM.

13. Draft Policy ARIN-2019-18: LIR/ISP Re-Assignment to Non-Connected Networks

RS stated that he is very glad that the AC is not abandoning this policy, as there is serious discussion about it. He has contacted the authors for editing, and the authors are including some of our suggestions. He noted that the problem statement could be edited further, but foresees a good discussion at the PPM. The Chair reminded RS that the editing ‘pen’ is in his hands, he should present it in the best possible light. RS acknowledged this, but stated that he did not want to ‘steamroll’ the author’s original intent.

The Chair stated that item 7 would now be discussed.

DF stated that OD had posted an email to the AC’s list prior to this meeting stating that there were no changes to this policy, and that it was ready to be presented in Austin, TX at the ARIN 44 Public Policy Meeting (PPM).

14. Any Other Business

The Chair called for any other business. She stated that she had three items:

  1. She thanked the AC for submitting the slide presentations in a timely manner. She noted there were still some outstanding, but that this is the earliest she had seen presentations completed before a PPM. She asked the AC to help each other out if needed.
  2. She noted that the slides could use something to make them more interesting. She encouraged the AC to add discussion points with members, real world experiences, etc. to liven up the presentations..
  3. Table Topics. The Chair stated she had received four great submissions from the AC. She then provided an overview of each. She added that if the AC would like a more in-depth discussion of a particular policy, to please let it be known. There is still time to change the topics, but the deadline is approaching soon.

The Chair also noted that further discussion on the slide presentations and table topics will take place on the AC’s mailing list.

AT asked if the AC was still considering a Halloween celebration while in Austin. The Chair stated that something could be possible during the ARIN social event, and if an AC member would like to take the lead on it, they are free to do so.

It was asked if the AC could use their chat channel to coordinate arrivals in Austin, etc. with each other. The Chair confirmed they could do so.

15. Adjournment

The Chair entertained a motion to adjourn at 4:27 p.m. EDT. LS moved to adjourn, seconded by KR. The meeting adjourned with no objections.
