Participate in the Public Policy Process

Posted: Tuesday, 23 September 2014

You may have heard about the upcoming ARIN 34 Public Policy and Member Meeting, held 9-10 October in Baltimore, Maryland, back-to-back with NANOG 62. Did you know that October will bring two opportunities for you to take part in ARIN Public Policy discussion?

First, ARIN will hold a Public Policy Consultation (PPC) during NANOG 62 on 7 October 2014 from 9:30 AM – 1:00 PM EDT. The PPC will be followed by the ARIN 34 Public Policy Meeting, which will be held on 9 October from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT. Both meetings will provide a lively discussion forum for recommended and draft policies, as well as Open Microphone sessions.

We hope to see you there, but if you are unable to make it in person, participating online can be equally rewarding. As a registered remote participant, you'll be able to access the live transcript and webcast on the ARIN website throughout the meeting, submit questions and comments alongside in-person attendees, and raise your virtual hand during straw polls.

In order to take full advantage of remote participation you will need a Jabber client, and we'll need your Jabber Identifier (JID) when you register. For details, visit:
