Re: [802SEC] Fwd: Re: Enet dinner--expense approval, motionrequest
I will be voting Disapprove on such a motion. If the motion fails, I
will be happy to personally cover my share (including my share of the
costs for all the invited guests).
And, by the way, who is the sixth panelist? We first heard Paul
Nikolich, Geoff Thompson, and Bob Metcalfe. Last week, the names Ron
Crane and David Boggs leaked out.
