Have you heard? Registration is now open for ARIN 46, and we want you to 
join us!


The ARIN 46 Public Policy and Members Meeting will be spread out over 
two sets of dates, 14-15 October and 23 October, and registering just 
once grants you access to all days of the meeting. On 14-15 October, we 
will be conducting policy discussions and providing ARIN operational 
reports. On 23 October, we will reconvene for the Members Meeting and to 
discuss the 2020 ARIN Elections and meet our candidates for the Board of 
Trustees and Advisory Council.

During ARIN 46, the ARIN Advisory Council will be seeking your feedback 
on the following policies:

-    Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2020-1: Clarify Holding Period for 
Resources Received via 4.1.8 Waitlist
-    Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2020-2: Reinstatement of 
Organizations Removed from Waitlist by Implementation of ARIN-2019-16

Just like our last virtual meeting, ARIN 46 will be held via Zoom. We 
will provide the same remote participation options for ARIN 46 that we 
usually do for our in-person Public Policy and Members Meetings, 
utilizing features inside the Zoom webinar platform. We’re also planning 
a few exciting enhancements that we’re bringing to ARIN 46, which we’ll 
be sharing more about in a blog post coming soon.

In addition to the dates above, don’t forget to save the date for the 
ARIN 46 Newcomer Orientation and Policy Preview! All registrants will be 
invited to participate in an optional Newcomer Orientation and Policy 
Preview on 7 October. We welcome all first-time ARIN meeting attendees 
to come learn about ARIN and find out how to make the most of your 
meeting experience.

We hope to see you online for ARIN 46! If you have any questions, please 
email us at meetings at arin.net.
