ARIN’s Policy Development Process – Coming Soon to Wherever You Are

By Sean Hopkins - Policy Analyst, ARIN

You asked, we delivered. At a recent Public Policy and Members (PPMM) Meeting we had a request from the community to offer the Policy Development Process Tutorial as a webinar, and we thought it was a great idea! At the start of each PPMM meeting, we offer a Policy Development Process Tutorial and a Newcomer Orientation for those who are new to an ARIN meeting and want to learn more about what to expect. We are now excited to offer this information to a wider audience to encourage more participation in developing policies for the ARIN region, and to make it more accessible for interested Internet community members.

Is this webinar for you?

The answer is most likely yes! This is a great opportunity for newcomers to ARIN’s Policy Development Process (PDP), and also for seasoned veterans who are looking to refine their skills. This tutorial is advantageously taking place right before ARIN 44, so it’s a great opportunity to brush up on how policies work at ARIN, and to learn about the ways you can participate in the process.

What should you expect?

This tutorial will include an overview of what Internet number resource policy means to you, steps from proposal to policy, and the key players in moving the process along. Some of the topics we’ll discuss include:

  1. What Internet number resource policies mean to ARIN and to you
  2. How these policies are developed by the ARIN community
  3. Who participates in the PDP
  4. When key PDP steps occur
  5. Why you should get involved
  6. Where you can get started
