Celebrating ARIN’s 25th Anniversary

Celebrating ARIN’s 25th Anniversary

December 2022 marks 25 years that ARIN has been in operation, and we couldn’t have made it to this milestone without our amazing community and staff. From all of us here at ARIN, we wish to express our sincere gratitude to you for the support we’ve received over the past quarter century.

Together with our community, we have accomplished so much since 1997, such as managing regional Internet number resource policy through our community-driven policy development process (PDP), offering a variety of educational and training opportunities, continually deploying updates to the tools and services ARIN provides to our customers, hosting Public Policy and Members Meetings and other outreach events around our region, and much more.

25 Days of ARIN

To commemorate this special anniversary, we’ve been sharing fun facts and figures about the organization’s notable achievements, programs, and community happenings for “25 Days of ARIN” leading up to our 25th anniversary on 22 December. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check it out by following us @TeamARIN on Twitter and to join in the festivities by tweeting us your favorite ARIN memory, milestone, or fun fact!

See all the interesting anecdotes we have shared by scrolling through them below or searching #25DaysOfARIN on Twitter.

Happy Holidays and Cheers to 25 Years

With 2022 drawing to a close and the holiday season upon us, we find ourselves reflecting not only on ARIN’s whole lifetime, but on the past year in particular. We’re thrilled to have been able to return to many in-person events around our region as well as deploy new services, updates, security upgrades, training, and more.

Thank you to the ARIN Board of Trustees, the Advisory Council, the Number Resource Organization Number Council, and everyone who has contributed to ARIN’s mission this year and the 24 before it. We wish you each the best as you embark on the new year ahead, and we look forward to serving and collaborating with you in 2023 and for many more years to come!

Watch the 2022 Holiday Greeting shared on behalf of all of us at ARIN.

Following up on that #25DaysOfARIN fun fact #21, we also wanted to give a special shout out and thank you to the seven founding members of the ARIN Board of Trustees. We’re grateful to Scott Bradner, Randy Bush, John Curran, Kim Hubbard, Jon Postel, Don Telage, and Raymundo Vega Aguilar for their invaluable service!
