Posted: 8 Oct 2009

You still have time to register to attend ARIN XXIV Public Policy and Members Meeting in Dearborn, Michigan. The meeting will be full of timely discussions along with all the other great benefits you have come to expect from an ARIN meeting. Check out the agenda for all the details at:

You won’t want to miss our Tuesday features and your chance to learn first hand about the Policy Development Process at 5:30 PM (EDT). You can even sign up to present your ideas at the Open Policy Hour, Tuesday, 20 October from 6:00-7:00 PM (EDT).

The Open Policy Hour (OPH) is a showcase for your policy ideas. If you have a policy idea that you would like to receive feedback on prior to submitting a proposal, here is your opportunity. Sign up by Friday, 16 October to ensure your chance to take the microphone. Send an email to with your name, organization, and a general description of the policy subject you wish to present. You do not need to have a formal presentation in order to participate. Signing up in advance allows us to confirm your turn to present your policy idea.

We will be featuring candidate speeches for NRO Number Council, ARIN Board of Trustees and Advisory Council elections on Wednesday; which will be webcast and archived for viewing through the election period.  The NRO Number Council election will be open to everyone attending on Wednesday from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM (EDT).  Polls will also open Wednesday at 3:00 PM (EDT) for confirmed eligible designated member representatives to begin casting their ballots in the ARIN Board and Advisory Council elections.
