Re: Rules Change Ballot; Addition of Scope Statement

Re: "promote"
Does that mean that we are doing a change of direction and, in addition to our current tasks, taking on the marketing task that has been done in the past (for 802.3 at least) by supporting alliances?

Dear SEC,

At the July 2000 plenary the 802 Sponsor Executive Committee (SEC) agreed to initiate a rules change ballot to add a scope statement to our operating rules.

The scope statement:

"The scope of IEEE LMSC is to develop, maintain, enable and promote, on a global basis, accredited networking standards and recommended practices"

would be added as a separate paragraph to the end of section 1 Overview.

The official SEC ballot period will open on August 8, 2000 5pm EDT and close on October 6, 2000 5pm EDT.

As a member of IEEE Project 802 you are encouraged to carefully review the proposed rule changes and ask questions of, or forward any comments to me or any other representative on the LMSC SEC well before the closure of the SEC ballot. SEC members will carefully consider your comments and suggestions as part of the balloting process.
