802.15 Sponsor Ballot Pool
Below is an email which is being circulated to 802.11 and 802.15 as well
as the Bluetooth SIG and HomeRF. Please circulate among your
Working Groups as appropriate.
This email is being sent to solicit your interest in joining the 802.15
Sponsor Ballot pool. 802.15 is currently working on a draft standard
based on the Bluetooth specification.
For those of you who are not familiar with the IEEE Standards
process, once a draft standard has been approved by the Working
Group, it is forwarded to the 802 Executive Committee for approval
and to begin the Sponsor Ballot process. The participants in the
Sponsor Ballot are invited to join from people who are members of the
Sponsor Ballot pool. The goal is to achieve a Sponsor Ballot Group which
is a balanced representation of people having interest in Wireless
Personal Area Networks and allow this group the ability to continue to
ballot on the technical validity of the proposed standard-post working
group. In order to be eligible to participate in the Sponsor
Ballot, you must become a member of the Sponsor Ballot pool. The
form to join can be found at
. Be sure to check the box for 802.15.
Note: You can enter the LAN-MAN 802.15 Balloting Pool without an IEEE-SA Member Number but if you do not join the IEEE-SA then you will be dropped from the LAN-MAN 802.15 Balloting Group when it is formed.
To become an IEEE-SA Member, complete the Membership form which can be found at http://standards.ieee.org/sa-mem/join.html . The IEEE-SA Member dues are nominal If you are already and IEEE member. See http://standards.ieee.org/faqs/sa-faq.html#q3. Sign up as an individual member.
