Re: [802SEC] March Plenary education
Thanks for following up on this. I think your suggestion of a Process Panel
discussion is excellent--an interactive discussion among interested members
and experienced panelists would be of significant value I believe. We do
have a bit of a problem in scheduling something like this, ideally we would
want to hold this during a time when regular WG meetings are not
scheduled--I'll leave that up to you and Buzz to work out.
