IANA Functions Stewardship Transition Updates

  On 14 March 2014, the NTIA announced its intention to transition its 
stewardship role of IANA functions, and called upon ICANN to launch and 
facilitate a process with the community to derive a proposal to 
transition the IANA functions to the global multistakeholder community, 
meeting the criteria set out by the NTIA.
Following community dialogue, the process for developing a proposal for 
this transition was posted on 6 June 2014. As a part of this process, a 
Coordination Group will be responsible for preparing a transitional 
proposal respective of the differing needs of the various affected 
parties of the IANA functions.

See here for a full list of the Coordination Group Representatives. 
https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/coordination-group-2014-06-17-en

The first face-to-face meeting of the Coordination Group will take place 
in London from 08:00-17:00 UTC on 17-18 July at the Hilton London 
Metropole Hotel.

The global multistakeholder community will be able to follow the 
Coordination Group's first meeting through the Virtual Meeting Room and

*    English
*    French
*    Spanish

Seeking Contributions for 2014 Nominee Questionnaires

In October 2014 ARIN will hold elections for open seats on the ARIN 
Board of Trustees, ARIN Advisory Council, and make one appointment to 
the NRO Number Council (also known as the ASO Address Council). To 
prepare, we are opening the floor for Community "Ask the Nominee" questions!

If you have questions on relevant policy issues and challenges facing 
ARIN that you'd like candidates to answer, send them to info@... no 
later than 7 July 2014. Please indicate if your question is directed to 
candidates for the Board, Advisory Council, NRO Number Council or any 
combination of the three.

The Nomination Committee (NomCom) will determine the final list and 
phrasing of all questions. ARIN will publish candidate bios and their 
questionnaire responses when the slate of candidates is announced. Last 
year's nominee questions may be viewed at:

Addition to ARIN's Community Software Repository

ARIN has recently added a new community-developed tool to it's Community 
Software Repository: a Whois-RWS client built for use with Microsoft's 
.NET framework. This resource is available on projects.arin.net, 
alongside many other useful tools.

ARIN furnishes this software repository as a service to the community to 
promote tools that are related to ARIN's mission. These tools include 
command line clients, Java applications, Ruby scripts, and other clients 
that interface with ARIN's Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), 
including our Whois RESTful Web Service (Whois-RWS), the Registration 
RESTful Web Service (Reg-RWS), and Resource Certification, also known as 
Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI).

We strongly encourage community members to develop, test, and submit 
similar clients and tools for projects.arin.net, as our APIs and 
services continue to evolve.
