4. Audit Committee Report

The Audit Committee met on 23 May 2012 to review the Draft Financial Audit Report. They recommend the report be forwarded to the Board for adoption.  Vint Cerf, Committee Chair, stated it was a simple report, due to an extremely clean audit. He thanked staff for the very good job of keeping track of expenditures. He noted there were no issues raised by the auditor or by the committee.

It was moved by Vint Cerf, and seconded by Scott Bradner, that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees hereby adopts the Financial Audit Report, as presented by ARIN's Audit Committee."

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

5. ICANN Ratification of the global policy proposal GPP-IPv4-2011, identified in the ARIN region as "ARIN-2011-9 (Global Proposal)"

It was moved by Scott Bradner, and seconded by Paul Andersen, that:

"The ARIN Board of Trustees, hereby recognizing that GPP-IPv4-2011 has been approved by the ICANN Board, directs ARIN staff to return to the IANA the address space that has been thus far returned to ARIN, as listed in Exhibit A."

The Chair called for discussion. The Board reviewed Exhibit A, a list of address prefixes. The President pointed out that the list it does not include the address space revoked, only space returned. Now that the policy is adopted, ARIN can return addresses that are smaller than a /8 to IANA. He asked the Board to allow ARIN to perform a one-time return of these blocks, noting this does not establish a precedent.

Bill Woodcock was concerned that ARIN return the space in a block at a time, or a measured way – not all at once. He was not in support of giving it all back without checks and balances.

The motion carried with one abstention (Bill Woodcock) via roll call.

6. NANOG/ARIN Policy Track

The President noted the possibility of allowing a policy track at joint ARIN/NANOG meetings. This would mean ARIN would relinquish its Wednesday, shortening the ARIN Public Policy Meeting, and NANOG would run through Wed afternoon. However, during all Nanog sessions, ARIN would have a 2-hour policy track and consultations session. He explained this would provide more synergy with the operator community, and it would be open to anyone.  The AC to hold consultations if desired, receiving more operator input.

Scott Bradner asked if the Board and AC were required to attend the 2-hour session.  The President replied that remote participation support is required for ARIN to have a consultation; and, that Board members would be welcome to participate remotely but only the AC members assigned to the policies need to be there in person for the policy track. ARIN staff will run the help desk, as normally done at these events.

Paul Andersen stated he was in full support of approving this at this time to show support to NANOG. Paul Vixie, and Vint Cerf agreed.   It was the sense of the Board to move forward with the policy track.

The President welcomed any further comments or concerns via email or phone.

7. ARIN General Counsel Update

Counsel provided an attorney-client privileged briefing to the Board on ARIN legal matters.

8. Nomination Committee (NomCom) Schedule

The Board reviewed the Charter of the NomCom, and the President provided an overview of the process to the Board.

It was moved by Scott Bradner, and seconded by Bill Woodcock, that:

"Resolved, that the ARIN Board of Trustees adopts the Charter of the 2012 ARIN Nomination Committee, as written."

The Chair called for discussion.  Paul Andersen stated that the Board Governance Committee discussed the Charter and found it sufficient, and noted it was also brought up at the last Board meeting.

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

It was moved by Paul Andersen, and seconded by John Curran, that:

"Resolved, that the ARIN Board of Trustees appoints Kevin Blumberg and Chris Grundemann, of the ARIN AC, and Tim Denton and Scott Bradner of the ARIN Board, as Nomination Committee Members, with Tim Denton serving as Chair of the Committee."

The motion carried unanimously via roll call.

9. Board Appointed Election Vote Counter

Per the ARIN Bylaws, the Board needs to select a Board member to be the Election Vote Counter.

It was moved by Scott Bradner, and seconded by Tim Denton, that:

"Resolved, that the ARIN Board of Trustees appoints Paul Vixie to be Election Vote Counter for the 2012 Elections."

The Chair called for discussion. Paul Vixie confirmed he was willing to serve as the vote counter.
