Rules change ballot; addition of Procedure 10: communication with government bodies
This is a reminder to those who haven't cast their ballot to do so. The ballot closes October 6. (Remember, the lack of a vote will count as a disapprove. So far I have responses from Carlo, Jeffree and Thompson)
Dear SEC and 802 members
At the July 2000 plenary the 802 Sponsor Executive Committee (SEC) agreed to initiate a rules change ballot to add Procedure 10 in our operating rules.
"Procedure 10 PROCEDURE FOR COMMUNICATION WITH GOVERNMENT BODIES
o IEEE 802 position statements
- All communications with government bodies shall be approved by the Executive Committee prior to release.
- All communications shall be sent under the signature of the LMSC Chair as the position of IEEE 802 (stated in the first paragraph) and shall be copied to the SEC and the IEEE SA Standards Board Secretary and shall be posted on the IEEE 802 web site and reviewed after 5 years.
o Working group position statements
- All communications with government bodies shall be approved by a majority of the working group and shall reviewed by the Executive Committee prior to release.
- All communications shall be sent under the signature of the Working group Chair(s) as the position of the working group(s) (stated in the first paragraph) and shall include the LMSC Chair in the communication distribution list.
o Incoming liaison letters to Executive Committee members shall be sent, as a minimum to the LMSC Chair.
o Informal communications are encouraged but should not imply that they are a formal position of the IEEE 802 or of the working group
o Proposed position statements that need to be authored by other IEEE entities shall be approved by the SEC and forwarded to the IEEE SA Standards Board Secretary for further processing."
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.
IEEE Project 802 LMSC Vice Chair
