ARIN 36 Day 1 Daily Recap

By Jennifer Bly - Public Affairs Specialist, ARIN

From la belle ville Montréal, Québec, ARIN 36 Public Policy and Members Day 1 kicked off with participants from around the world.  Lots of engaging conversations flowed throughout the day and we are looking forward to more to follow tomorrow.  If you weren’t able to join us onsite or online for today’s activities, here’s a quick recap of what happened:
The morning began with a first timers’ orientation for the 60+ newcomers to an ARIN meeting, where staff welcomed and encouraged them to participate in the policy process. During the general session, the Advisory Council Chair presented on-docket proposals, which for today included the following 8 policies:

Recommended Draft Policies

Draft Policies

In addition to policy discussions, we also heard a report on IPv6 activities from the most recent Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meeting and an update on the IANA stewardship transition process.  Through a policy implementation report, the community received staff feedback on areas where policy could be clearer based on experiences.  We also heard about IPv4 depletion (it happened!), and ARIN fees and services, and NRO activities.

After lunch, candidates for Board of Trustees, Advisory Council, and NRO NC made speeches after which the election polls opened for voting. And finally, the day concluded with an open microphone session that allowed attendees to voice any last questions, concerns, or interesting tidbits on their minds.  If you would like to go back to something you heard today, presentation slides are already available and in the next few days the meeting webcast archives, transcripts, and summary notes will be posted as well.

If you’re on social media, make sure to use the #ARIN36 hashtag on your favorite platform to help spread the word. For those of you on Twitter, you have a chance to win a $100 ThinkGeek gift certificate for tweeting with an original tweet including either #ARIN36 or #get6.

Please come back tomorrow morning for more great Public Policy Meeting sessions starting at 9 AM ET sharp followed by the ARIN Members Meeting scheduled through early afternoon.  I’ll post another daily recap again at the end of the day as well. Until then, au revoir.
