[802SEC] Fwd: Re: IEEE Standards Complimentary Copies


I fail to see that this is of any significant value to 802 given:
        1) The 802 CD Program
        2) The "Get IEEE 802(tm)" program
        3) All of the discussion that we have had that the complimentary copies were vanity copies to show colleagues and grandchildren and that a pdf didn't really cut it.

Do we wish to generate a collective response on this?

Dear Working Group Chairs:

It has been brought to our attention that, because of errors made during a
transition of inventory by the IEEE, complimentary copies to working group
members for standards published within the last two years may not have been
delivered. We have worked to correct the process and do not anticipate any
further problems.  Now, we want to rectify the oversights of the past.

The IEEE Standards Activities Department recognizes and appreciates the
time and effort dedicated to the development of IEEE Standards by our
volunteers. Therefore, we would like to offer an electronic copy to members
of working groups who did not receive their complimentary copy. Each
working group chair is asked to supply a list of members who have been
affected, along with their email addresses, so that an electronic copy can
be delivered. The lists should be sent to the Associate Editor, Michelle
Turner (, via email.

We apologize for the delay in delivery and appreciate your understanding.
