Since the twice yearly ARIN meeting is an integral
part of the policy process, there is already a
"policymaking calendar" in place. It seems reasonable
to extend this concept of a calendar to include the
AC meetings and perhaps even go so far as to include
the act of publishing the policy proposals.

The end result would be that we can plan our year by knowing
on exactly which day policy proposals will be published on
the list, and on which day the results of the AC review
will be published. To supplement this, perhaps a brief
notice could go out to the members list as a heads up
that something is being published on PPML (i.e. new
policy proposal or AC review results).
