ARIN Community,

Based on over five years experience with 170 suggestions, ARIN proposes 
changes to the suggestion process found as Part B of the ARIN 
Consultation and Suggestion Process (ACSP).
The current process is documented at: 

The proposed changes, available at: 
involve only Part B. The Suggestion Process.  The primary change calls 
for queuing of all suggestions determined by staff to have merit (that 
can not be implemented quickly) until each ARIN Public Policy and 
Members Meeting. Two weeks in advance of each meeting the community will 
be asked, via a mailing list and/or survey, to discuss the merits of 
each suggestion and to rank them in order of desired implementation.  
ARIN believes this is a more transparent and equitable way to broaden 
community involvement in suggestions.  This approach will aid ARIN in 
scheduling for implementations to coincide with ongoing strategic 

The community's constructive thoughts on the revised ACSP are welcome 
during this thirty-day review period.
