ARIN holds open, biannual Public Policy and Members Meetings where attendees gather to discuss draft Internet number resource policies, network with colleagues, and attend workshops and tutorials. You can view current policy Draft Policies and Proposals that may be discussed at this meeting on the ARIN website.
In addition to policy and technical discussions, there will be a Happy Hour on Wednesday evening, a First Timers' Event on Thursday morning to welcome those new to ARIN or ARIN meetings, and a very exciting social event planned for Thursday evening. When registering, please be sure to select which of those events you would like to attend.
If you're not able to be there in person, ARIN offers a webcast and live transcript of the full meeting, and registered remote participants will have access to a meeting chat room where they can submit comments and questions to the discussions during the meeting. More information is available here.
So whether you'll be participating in-person or remotely, register today!
Fellowship applications remain open for ARIN 34 until 29 August 2014 at 5:00 PM ET. All applications received after that date will be considered for the next ARIN Meeting. ARIN provides financial support for three Fellows to attend each ARIN Public Policy and Members Meeting. If the applicant pool permits, one Fellow will be selected from each sector of the ARIN region: Canada, the Caribbean and North Atlantic Islands, and the Untied States and Outlying Areas. ARIN may select multiple Fellows from a single sector if insufficient qualifying applications are received. The purpose of the fellowship program is to broaden education outreach in the community and bring new ideas into the public policy discussions.

The Scholarship provides funding so that network operators from developing nations may attend back-to-back meetings of NANOG and ARIN.
