ARIN XXV: Everything You Need to Know

Posted: Friday, 02 April 2010

You still have time to register to attend the ARIN XXV Public Policy and Members Meeting in Toronto, Ontario. 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.

You won’t want to miss our Sunday features and your chance to learn firsthand about the Policy Development Process at 4:45 PM (EDT). You can even sign up to present your ideas at the Open Policy Hour, Sunday, 18 April from 5:00-6:00 PM (EDT).

The Open Policy Hour (OPH) provides background information about draft policies, and is a showcase for your policy ideas. If you have an idea that you would like to receive feedback on prior to submitting a policy proposal, this is your opportunity. Sign up by Friday, 16 April 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.

If you won’t be with us in Toronto, we are offering multiple remote participation options starting Sunday during the “Hosting Providers & ARIN” session, the ARIN Online Demonstration, Open Policy Hour, and throughout the Public Policy and Members Meeting. In addition to the video and audio webcast, ARIN will offer a live transcript and Jabber chat to submit questions and comments and vote in straw polls. Get all the details and register as a remote participant at

Remote participants who pre-register their Jabber Identifiers (JIDs) will have access to the chat rooms from the start of the meeting. You can register a JID at any time, but new participants will only be added during scheduled breaks in the meeting. Registration is not required for the webcast and live transcript.
