It’s almost time to pack our bags and ship out to Montego Bay, Jamaica for ARIN 37! We’ll be at the Half Moon resort from 17-20 April and we hope you will too. If you can’t join us on site, I hope you will take advantage of our remote participation options and lend your voice to policy discussions.
The following policies are on our agenda along with a number of educational updates from ARIN and around the world:
- Draft Policy 2015-2: Modify 8.4 (Inter-RIR Transfers to Specified Recipients)
- Recommended Draft Policy 2015-3: Remove 30-day utilization requirement in end-user IPv4 policy
- Draft Policy 2015-7: Simplified requirements for demonstrated need for IPv4 transfers
- Draft policy 2015-9: Eliminating needs-based evaluation for Section 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4 transfers of IPv4 netblocks
- Draft Policy 2016-1: Reserved Pool Transfer Policy
In addition to our usual policy and technical discussions, there will also be a chance for newcomers to get acquainted with ARIN through a special “ARIN at a Glance” event on Sunday afternoon. This is a great opportunity for folks to brush up on the basics of ARIN. We’ll also host two happy hours (one on Sunday evening and one on Tuesday evening) plus a beach barbecue on Monday evening so you can connect with others in the Internet community.
For a full breakdown of events, view the complete day-by-day, hour-by-hour agenda on the ARIN 37 website.

Remote registration is free, and all remote registrants will be listed as registered participants on the meeting website and in the archive of the meeting on the ARIN website.
