RE: IEEE 802 Rules Change Ballot--opens Jan 10 2001, closes March 9 2001

Yes with the incicated changes

1.  I support Tony's rewording to

2.  Recognizing Geoff's comments on Jim's proposed change, I would reword
the third paragraph of as follows:

"Working Group observers and members are encouraged to join the IEEE
Standards Association (IEEE-SA) and the IEEE Computer Society. Although not
a requirement for membership in the Working Group, membership in the IEEE-SA
is required to participate with voting status in an IEEE Sponsor Ballot

Rationale for this wording:

a) We encorage anyone we can to join the SA and/or CS, not only members.
b) I base the SB participation text on the current text from the IEEE web
site (, which indicates that
those that pay the ballot fee participate as Observers.  
c) Since we don't set the rules for SB participation, the less said in our
rules the better.

Subject: IEEE 802 Rules Change Ballot--opens Jan 10 2001, closes March 9

Dear SEC,
January 9, 2001

Attached on the following pages you will find the text for two proposed
LMSC rules changes for SEC letter ballot (as approved at the November 2000

- The first proposed rules change broadens the rules to permit the use of
802 funds to support the publication and dissemination of 802 standards.

- The second proposed rules change resolves ambiguity in 5.1.3 with respect
to the definition and use of the terms 'members' (have achieved voting
status) and 'observers' (individuals who are registered attendees at a
plenary meeting that are NOT members).

This letter ballot will be open from January 10, 2001 to March 9, 2001.

Please review the changes, submit your comments and cast your ballot.
Remember, not voting is equivalent to a disapprove vote.
