Earlier this month, ARIN pledged $50,000 of financial support for the upcoming
Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2013 that will be held in Bali, Indonesia in
October.  This financial support is in addition to the joint Regional Internet 
Registry support for the IGF which has been provided each year (via the Number 
Resource Organization.)  The ARIN Board approved this one-time contribution for 
the Bali IGF 2013 meeting after an urgent appeal for additional funding from the 
IGF 2013 Secretariat Committee.

ARIN views the Internet Governance Forum (including its set of regional preparatory 
meetings) as an important catalyst for enhanced cooperation. The IGF format is unique 
among international conferences on Internet matters in that it provides for open 
information-sharing and discussion between all interested stakeholders, and ARIN's 
support of the Internet Governance Forum helps insure continuation of this important 
venue for multistakeholder dialogue.
