When 802.3 requests a floor microphone, it is important to productive conduct of business. This is especially true at closing meetings (802.3ah, 802.3 where motions involve significant comment from participants. I would assume not having the microphone extends an active closing 802.3 plenary by 0:30, so 200 people @ $50/hr. (very conservative) is a productivity loss of $5000.
I obviously have a problem with this arbitrary decision, and am curious as to where this referenced 802 guideline is published.

From: Face To Face Events Inc.
Please note podiums with microphones have been requested for only the meetings which have specified podiums. We have requested long cords on all the microphones. As noted in the 802 guidelines, and confirmed by Buzz Rigsbee, all there is one microphone allowed per meeting with 50 or more attendees. If you have requested more than one microphone please be aware there will only be one microphone in your meeting room and it will be located at the front of the room. Any comments or concerns should be directed to Buzz.
