NANOGers -

For those who don’t closely follow ARIN, it’s important to know that in 2022 we made a substantial change to ARIN membership and ability to participate in ARIN’s elections – and as a result, many organizations that have never participated in ARIN elections in the past will be able to do so if they so wish.

While previously one had to be an ARIN service provider (“ISP”) member to participate in ARIN’s elections, the recent change means that any organization with IPv4 or IPv6 number resources directly assigned and under contract with ARIN who is current with their ARIN fees may request ARIN General Member status, assign a voting contact & then participate in the upcoming elections for ARIN’s Board of Trustees, ARIN Advisory Council, etc.

Please see the message below for further information - thanks!

Subject: [arin-announce] Deadline Approaching — Make Sure Your Organization is Eligible to Vote in ARIN’s Upcoming Election!

We hope you are excited to participate in ARIN Elections this October. Please note that a key deadline for the ARIN Elections process is coming up. All organizations who wish to vote in this year’s election must be a General Member in Good Standing before 5:00 PM ET on Monday, 5 September 2022.

A General Member in Good Standing is defined as an entity that is current on all annual fees as well as having a valid Voting Contact on record. Only General Members in Good Standing are eligible to vote in ARIN Elections.

If you are not sure what type of member your organization is, you may check its status in your ARIN Online account. If your organization is eligible to request General Membership, you can access the General Member request form through the ACTIONS drop down menu.

If you are already a General Member, please make sure your account has no overdue invoices on file and that you have designated a Voting Contact in your account before 5:00 PM ET on 5 September. To learn more about how to designate or view your current Voting Contact, visit:

Don’t forget — General Members may also participate on ARIN’s General Member Mailing List. Subscription to the list is limited to General Members only, as well as Trustees and key ARIN staff, and it is intended for discussion of topics related to the governance of ARIN as well as ARIN Elections.
