On 10 October, we received a new suggestion, numbered 2019.19 upon confirmed
receipt, that ARIN send billing notices to 4X and 5X further in advance 
of the due date. Staff is
reviewing this suggestion and will issue a formal response once analysis 
is complete.

The full text of the suggestion may be found below or at:



Description: I’d like to suggest companies of 4x and 5x size receive 60 
or even 90 days notification instead of the standard 30 day 
notification/invoice before a membership bill is due. The monetary value 
of 4x and 5x invoices, many times require multiple financial documents 
and signatures to be filled out by different executives before the bill 
is due. This requires not only email but sometimes running from 
executive office to executive office getting sign off on the payment 
even with a purchase order already in place. As our company moves to 
automation, even our financial payments are done automatically. If I 
need to go outside that process because ARIN will not sign off on a 
vendor database, it takes even longer to get signatures completed 
because we are going “outside the process”.

Value to Community: This would allow members in the ARIN community 
additional time with very large accounts to have additional time to get 
the signatures in place before a bill is overdue. This is especially 
important during election periods. Additionally, you have to be a member 
in good standing to nominate a candidate for the advisory council. It 
would be sad if a candidate was unable to run because a member could not 
nominate them because of an overdue bill or a company could not vote 
because they did not get enough sign off in time.
