Today we issued our response (full text below) and closed ASCP 2017.20:
Quarterly Reporting of Travel Expenses


Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2017.20 upon confirmed receipt,
requesting a detailed quarterly reporting of the ARIN travel spending,
so that the community can better understand the costs and value involved
in providing outreach to other regions.

There are many reasons that ARIN staff, ARIN Board, and ARIN community
members travel on behalf of ARIN, and there are also many members of the
ARIN community who travel to Internet community events who are not on
ARIN funding at the time but on behalf of their employer or other

To improve community visibility into ARIN¹s travel costs, starting in
January ARIN will provide a quarterly report of ARIN-paid travel costs
to significant Internet events.  This report will include the date,
event, city, and the total travel costs occurred by ARIN (i.e. all ARIN
staff, Board, or community member travel included.)

We are closing your suggestion in anticipation of issuing the first
report in 2018. Thank you for your participation in the ARIN
Consultation and Suggestion Process.
