Force Exchange Meeting

I would like to be able to place a meeting on everyone's calendar in my organization, without giving them the ability to deny it.  It needs to automatically add to each calendar, even when a new user is created.  We are on Exchange 2010.

I understand that I can easily invite everyone to a meeting, but this does not really accomplish what I am going for.  When I invite everyone to a staff meeting, and we have turnover, new staff don't necessarily get invited to the meeting.

Is there a way to setup a policy that automatically puts meetings on people's calendars?

Is there a best practice for getting around the problem that I am having?

Any help would be appreciated.

There aren't any policies or anything built in to Exchange to allow that, but you can script it to work with some custom code using Exchange Web Services, apparently. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/exchange2010/thread/27affc1c-f96a-455f-95e9-cbcbc741720b has some information and a script that apparently does it, but I haven't tested it.

What about creating a New Dynamic Distribution Group for all user mailboxes and sending meeting  request to the group?

The problem with going the Dynamic Distro rout is that it still does not add the invite to users calendars/mailboxes who are added to our system AFTER the invite is sent out.

I know it's a weird request.  I would like something slightly more elegant than having to script it, but as it goes with Exchange, I know this is sometimes what is required.
