There is still time to make your opinions known about the proposed
changes to the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. In its first
five years ARIN has received 170 suggestions and hosted 19
consultations. At this time ARIN is proposing changes to the suggestion
process found as Part B of the ARIN Consultation and 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 objectives.

   We strongly encourage you to review both the current and proposed
versions of the ACSP, and to submit your constructive comments to
arin-consult at arin.net.
