> Policy term: Permanent

> participants" in the ARIN policy development process.
> An "active participant" for this purpose is defined as an individual
> who expresses support for OR objection to this proposal.
> Each "active participant" shall receive a single block of the same
> size, the size chosen so as to maximally use the /10 allocated for this
> purpose, but in no case shall the block be smaller than /24. No more
> than one such block shall be distributed per organization if a single
> organization has more than one "active participant".
> In the case where the number of "active participants" exceeds the
