Michael -

You are correct - the ARIN Board can make (or suspend) policy without any input or approval if need be, but the Board has adopted the ARIN Policy Development Process that reserves such acts for emergency situations.   Accountability to the ARIN community is maintained via the ARIN members collective power to elect and remove Board members.

Best wishes,
