ARIN XXVII: We Want You!

Posted: Wed, 06 April 2011

The ARIN XXVII Public Policy and Members Meeting will be held next week in San Juan. Whether you’re attending in person or participating remotely, be sure to review the agenda so you don’t miss your chance to share your thoughts during the policy discussions.

For new policy ideas and suggestions not already on the Public Policy Meeting agenda, you can register by Friday, 8 April to guarantee yourself a turn at the mic! The Open Policy Hour (OPH) on Tuesday afternoon is a great chance to have your new ideas and suggestions heard by ARIN and its membership. If you have a policy idea that you would like to receive feedback on prior to submitting a proposal, this is your opportunity. Sign up by Friday, 1 April to ensure your chance to take the microphone.  To register, 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.

The agenda is subject to change, but we will make every effort not to change the times for policy discussions. We will be sending daily agenda updates to all attendees and registered remote participants. You can also follow us on Twitter @TeamARIN for schedule updates. Be sure to use the #arin27 tag for your own tweets about the meeting.

If you will not be in person, you can still take advantage of ARIN’s excellent remote participation features that will allow your voice to be heard during critical policy discussions. In addition to following the video or audio webcast, you can read along with the live transcript, submit questions and comments, and vote in straw polls via Jabber chat.
