Some Questions about the Policy Process:
1. Do you want to know what policy proposals will be discussed at the 
upcoming ARIN Public Policy Meeting?
2. Do you have an idea about how ARIN should manage Internet Number 
3. Do you think that a current policy should be enhanced or changed, or 
even retired?
4. Are you hesitant about making a formal proposal on the Public Policy 
Mail List (PPML)?
5. Are you new to the Policy Development Process?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you should attend 
the Open Policy Hour!

What is The Open Policy Hour? It is your opportunity to get a better 
understanding of what is going to be discussed at the upcoming Public 
Policy Meeting or for you to discuss your ideas in an open, informal 
forum and receive feedback or both! The Open Policy Hour consists of two 

Part One is the P2B2 or the Policy Proposal Background Briefing. ARIN 
staff will provide summary information regarding the policy proposals 
that will be discussed at the meeting. Members of the ARIN Advisory
Council will be present to answer general questions about the policy 
proposals. There will be no discussion of the proposals, just the 
information that you need to help you understand the nature of the 

Part Two is the P2B or the Policy Proposal BoF. This is where you get a 
chance to "test drive" a policy idea. How can you participate? Bring 
your ideas and questions. If you have a policy suggestion for which you 
would like to receive feedback prior to submitting it to the community 
on the PPML, here is your opportunity. If you have a short (3-minute) 
presentation prepared you will be given the first opportunity to present 
it. To sign up to give a presentation please send an e-mail to 
policy at arin.net by 12 October 2007 with your name, organization, and a 
brief description of your policy subject.

Come join your colleagues in this informal setting. The Open Policy Hour 
for ARIN XX will be held on Tuesday, 16 October, from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. If 
you are not familiar with the way policies are developed in the ARIN 
region, join ARIN staff a half hour earlier, at 5:30 PM, for a review of 
the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process.
