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? Quite simply, 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 parts.

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 18 April 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 XIX will be held on Sunday, 22 April, from 5:00 - 6:00 PM. If
you are not familiar with the way policies are developed in the ARIN
region, join ARIN staff fifteen minutes earlier, at 4:45 PM, for a
review of the Internet Resource Policy Evaluation Process.
