I don't completely disagree but I would point out that the attending
members of 802 will be paying registration fees themselves. By my count
those attending the dinner will be paying well over $6000. I believe also

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.
Since a 10 day email ballot wouldn't close until after the start of

I would like to make the following SEC Motion to cover the costs of
dinner for the SEC and special guests to be held before the
Year Retrospective. The guest list will be the members of the SEC
Vice Chairs of 802.20), the six panel
speakers, the officers of 802.3 plusestimated
the 2 former chairs, I would also like to include (per you
Carlo (IEEE-SA President Elect) and Houlin Zhao (ITU-T Director of
Telecom Standards Bureau). The guest list totals 31.
$25-$30 per head. I will like a little
wiggle room in the motion. > > > approved at the opening EC
meeting to make sure we are squeekey
