Election Forum (28 October)

Each fall, representatives from ARIN’s General Members in Good Standing elect candidates to the ARIN Board of Trustees and the Advisory Council. This year, we are also electing one ARIN representative to the Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC).

At the Election Forum, you’ll be able to hear speeches from the candidates. There will also be a forum for Board of Trustees and Advisory Council candidates to answer questions important to the ARIN community.

Members Meeting (4 November)

Held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, registrants can choose to attend in-person or virtually. We are featuring a keynote presentation from Chris Painter, President of the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise Foundation, titled “Cybersecurity and the Internet: The Road Less Traveled” as well as an Internet Governance Panel which will explore how cybersecurity and the Internet are evolving.

What to expect at ARIN 48

One hour before each meeting starts, you’ll receive a reminder email containing a link to attend that day’s session.

Attendees will be allowed into the Zoom 15 minutes before the meeting begins so you can say hello and chat with other attendees.
