Consultations & Suggestions

The ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process (ACSP) enables communications in an organized, deliberate, and transparent manner, while providing a feedback mechanism to allow ARIN to gauge community and member opinion on specific issues. Mailing lists and archives relating to the ACSP can also be accessed.

Suggestions and consultation on ARIN services and practices are requested in accordance with the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. The consultation process is used by the ARIN Board of Trustees or the President to consult ARIN members or the broader community in the ARIN region.
