3. Consent Agenda
June 2011 Board Minutes.
It was moved by Paul Vixie as Secretary, and seconded by Scott Bradner, that:
“The ARIN Board of Trustees approves the Minutes of June 10, 2011 ARIN Board Meeting, as written.”
The motion carried with no objections.
Actions Taken without a Meeting. Chair to lead.
A) ARIN-2011-5: Shared Transition Space for IPv4 Address Extension. The ARIN Board of Trustees needs to confirm their unanimous vote on the motion made below, as an action taken without a meeting, via electronic vote on July 7, 2011.
“The ARIN Board of Trustees approves the action taken without a meeting (via electronic vote) of the following motion made on July 7, 2011:
The ARIN Board believes that it is not within ARIN's authority to unilaterally make specialized allocations of the sort proposed in 2011-5. The ARIN Board recommends that any efforts in support of such an allocation be directed towards the IETF.”
Scott Bradner thought this matter should be a ‘sense of the Board’, and not a formal motion, and considered that it did not need to be confirmed. The President reviewed the statement that was made to the community regarding policy implementation.
There were no objections to Scott’s thought that it should be a sense of the Board that the statement was acknowledged and agreed to by the Board, and they agreed that no motion was needed.
B) ARIN 2011 Nomination Committee. The ARIN Board of Trustees needs to confirm their unanimous vote on the motion made below, as an action taken without a meeting, via electronic vote on July 21, 2011. It was moved by Scott Bradner, and seconded by Paul Andersen, that:
"The ARIN Board of Trustees appoints the following persons to the 2011 ARIN Nomination Committee: Paul Vixie, Board Representative and Committee Chair; and, Paul Andersen, Board Representative; Chris Morrow, ARIN Advisory Council Member; Chris Grundemann, ARIN Advisory Council Member; Dmitry Kohmanyuk, General Member in Good Standing; Tina Morris, General Member in Good Standing; and, John Kuhn, General Member in Good Standing."
The motion carried with no objections.
4. ARIN Fellowship Selection Committee
It was moved by Bill Woodcock, and seconded by Paul Vixie, that:
"The ARIN Board of Trustees appoints John Osman, and Kevin Blumberg, General Members in Good Standing, to serve on ARIN’s 2011 Fellowship Selection Committee."
The motion carried unanimously via roll call.
5. General Counsel Update
General Counsel presented an attorney-client privileged confidential briefing on several matters to the Board. The President recused himself from a portion of the briefing. It was the sense of the Board that the revised, draft Legacy Registration Service Agreement v. 3.0 proceeded in the correct direction of the Board's perspective; and, that the President and General Counsel are permitted to roll it out publicly at the next ARIN Public Policy Meeting to be held in Philadelphia, with whatever additional changes may be needed, if the President believes it is ready at that time.
6. NRO Update
- NRO EC Retreat. The CEO provided a report of the recent NRO EC Retreat and Meeting held in Montevideo, Uruguay. Scott Bradner and Nate Davis, observers to the meeting, also provided their thoughts. Significant retreat topics included a discussion of ARIN policy on returned address space and the establishment of an NRO Policy Affairs Coordination Group (PACG).
7. Any Other Business
The Chair called for any other business. There was discussion of current Internet events, but no specific actions taken.
The Chair entertained a motion to adjourn at 11:34 a.m. Vint Cerf moved to adjourn, seconded by Paul Andersen. The meeting adjourned with no objections.
