Today marked the last day of the ARIN 36 Public Policy and Members Meeting in Montreal, Canada. A big shout out to those of you who participated both in person and online. The level of dialogue was high and your insightful commentary was a valuable contribution within the ARIN policy development process.
Here’s another quick recap of what went down:
This morning we jumped right into policy discussions. The 3 drafts covered today included:
- Draft Policy ARIN-2015-5: Out of region use
- Draft Policy ARIN-2015-6: Transfers and Multi-national Networks
- Draft Policy ARIN-2015-9: Eliminating needs-based evaluation for Section 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 transfers of IPv4 netblocks
After we wrapped up the public policy portion of the meeting, we moved right into the Members Meeting in the afternoon. We heard from the Number Resource Organization (NRO) and ARIN Registration Services and Engineering departments. We heard an Advisory Council report, a financial report, and lastly, a Board of Trustees report. As always, the day closed with an open microphone session where community members contributed their final thoughts.
Within the next 7 business days, a full meeting report of everything that happened will be posted on our ARIN 36 page. In the meantime, feel free to refer to the slide decks already available for you to download:
