Then each ARIN department head shared about their respective work; Mark Kosters discussed engineering, Susan Hamlin gave the update on Communications and Member Services, Erin Alligood spoke about Human Resources and Administration, Val Winkelman gave an update from the Financial Services Department, and Leslie Nobile spoke about Registration Services.

Bill Darte and Stacy Hughes ARIN 34Advisory Council Chair, John Sweeting, gave the AC Report, thanking both Bill Darte and Stacy Hughes for their long time service on the ARIN Advisory Council. Next, Treasurer, Paul Andersen, gave the financial report and ARIN CEO followed up with a status update on the ARIN Free Structure review. Lastly, Board Chair, Vint Cerf, delivered the Board of Trustees Report.

The day concluded with a time for participants to speak during an open microphone session. Several community members asked questions and provided interesting comments, suggestions, and observations.
