Voting Participation in 802.11

 

Voting participation in IEEE 802.11 is gained by properly attending 2 of 4 consecutive plenary meetings (one of which may be substituted by an interim).

"Properly Attending" means that a participant has:

• Recorded their contact details and affiliation.
• Recorded attendance for 75% of the “in session hours” (i.e. morning and afternoon) meeting slots (these are indicated as such on the session graphic in the WG agenda). Evening meetings may be substituted for any of the “in session hours” meetings.
• Registered for the session and paid any required meeting fee.
 

You can view your current status here.

After the first meeting, a participant will be an Aspirant.
After the second meeting, a participant will be a Potential Voter.
A Potential Voter becomes a Voter at the start of the next attended plenary session provided that the participant has:

• Recorded their contact details and affiliation.
• Recorded attendance for at least one 802.11 meeting slot.
• Registered for the session and paid any required meeting fee.
 

Promotion from Potential Voter to Voter is automatic,  provided these conditions are satisfied.

(There was previously a requirement for a request to be made to the 802.11 chair to gain this status,  this requirement has been removed.   No request to the 802.11 chair is needed.)
