ARIN Membership tops 5,000!

Posted: Monday, 08 December 2014

ARIN is a member-based organization, and we couldn't have made it this far without the support and guidance of our Membership. Since our inception, you have participated in 34 Public Policy and Members Meetings, initiated and discussed over 88 community-developed policies, and cast over 21,000 votes in ARIN Elections. Thank you!

We rely on our members to be "good citizens" by voting in elections, attending meetings, and participating in the policy process, so we can continue to fulfill our mission. The primary benefit and responsibility of the ARIN Membership is voting each year in ARIN Elections for the ARIN Board of Trustees and Advisory Council. So we especially appreciate all the Designated Member Representatives (DMRs) of member organizations who vote in ARIN Elections.
