Who do you think is in charge of voting on policy?

The members of ARIN elect the board and the AC.

The AC votes on policies and if they make it past last call and the AC
favors their adoption, the BoT gets a final vote on them.

The AC does pay close attention to PPML and to our perceived will
of the community. Yes, our perceived will of the community is a
somewhat nebulous concept, but, I think that is unavoidable in
a consensus-based bottom-up process. However, if the community
expresses strong support for a direction contrary to the current
policy, that support would definitely be considered by the AC.
