Countdown to ARIN XXIII

Posted: Mon, 16 Mar 2009

There are only forty-two days left until ARIN XXIII Public Policy and Members Meeting. Please join us 26-29 April 2009 in San Antonio, Texas to add your voice to the community discussions.

In addition to the Public Policy and Members Meeting, there will be a number of informative, pre-meeting events on Sunday afternoon that you won’t want to miss.  IPv6 tutorials will take attendees from theory to practice, whether they are trying to run IPv6 themselves or need to implement IPv6 for their business.

Presentations will include:

  • How to setup IPv6 with 6to4 NAT
  • Connecting with a Tunnel Broker or Teredo
  • A Dive into IPv6 Implementation for ISP's - Is it that deep?

Later on Sunday there will be an opportunity to learn more about the Policy Development Process that was adopted 7 January 2009, and contribute your ideas at the Open Policy Hour.

Throughout the meeting, you'll have terrific opportunities to network with colleagues. On Monday evening ARIN will host a social event at the Southwest School of Art and Craft with down home dining and line dancing under the Texas stars.

Open to all attendees, the Members Meeting on Wednesday will feature ARIN department updates, Board and Advisory Council reports, and the popular open microphone session.


Take advantage of the early $100 registration fee and the special room rate at the hotel. After 13 April, the registration fee will increase to $150 (USD), though organizations that are members in good standing will continue to have the fee waived for two representatives. Also, you must reserve your hotel room before 30 March to take advantage of the special meeting attendee rate of $159 a night!
