Thank you for your suggestion numbered 2014.20, regarding increased awareness and transparency of ARIN Board of Trustees actions.

The ARIN Board of Trustees has considered this suggestion and taken specific steps to increase transparency, including formalizing the publication of Board agendas in advance of meetings and publication of supporting materials in the Board meeting minutes. Note that ARIN AC minutes are not published to the Public Policy Mailing List (PPML), but a summary of any policy actions, whether they originate from the ARIN AC or the ARIN Board of Trustees.

We believe that this addresses your suggestion and it is now closed. Thank you for participating in the ARIN Suggestion and Consultation Process.
