In 2009, ARIN introduced a Fellowship Program in an effort to broaden educational outreach within the ARIN region and to bring new voices and ideas into public policy discussions. At its inception, three individuals were selected from a pool of eligible applicants; one from each sector within the ARIN region: Canada, the Caribbean and North Atlantic Islands, and the United States and outlying areas. Today, the program welcomes up to 15 fellows, three to five from each sector of the ARIN region: Canada, the Caribbean and North Atlantic Islands, and the United States and Outlying Areas with consideration given to applicants outside of the ARIN region for any remaining fellowships.CONTINUE READING ON ARIN WEBSITE...
In an effort to create a truly open community forum, ARIN supports remote participation by providing electronic versions of all meeting materials, live transcripts, and webcasts of the Public Policy and Members Meetings. Additionally, access to official meeting chat rooms is available to registered remote participants, which allows them to participate in policy discussions, open microphone sessions, and straw polls.
