At our  last  NARALO  call the  request by the Chair is to  to ask the community of any interest to become our  liaison between ARIN and  NARALO.

 The only expression of interest  has come from Kerry Brown. 

We also have been communicating with Susan Hamlin of  ARIN to consider a MOU between our two organizations.  Most of the RALO's  have  a close relationship and three of the five have  a  signed  MOU with their corresponding local organisation.

*American Registry for Internet Numbers* a not for profit, membership-based company operating the regional internet registry in the North American and Caribbean region and is one of the five Address Supporting Organizations of ICANN hereinafter referred to as “*ARIN**”*

To learn more about ARIN  visit

We will keep the community  informed on the progress of this MOU.  If possible  it would be great to have a  signing ceremony in LA  if all goes well.
