We hope to see you in Barbados, 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.

The webcast and live transcript are available to anyone, but if you want to join in the meeting chat room and add your voice to the discussion and participate in straw polls, you must register at:

Select “Register” and choose “Remote Participant” as your registration type. We are using Slack for ARIN 43 and all remote participants will be sent an invitation to create an account to access the meeting chat. We strongly encourage you to log in to Slack to test this functionality before the meeting begins so that you can participate fully when the meeting starts. Please note that all times listed on the agenda are Atlantic Standard Time.

All remote participants are subject to the Remote Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) found at:
