Subject: Comment on Proposed 802 Rules Changes



    I hope you are doing well.  I sent a comment on the proposed ExCom rules changes to Paul Nikolich, but he tells me you are the one accumulating comments.  So, I'm sending my comment to you instead.

    There are a lot of nice changes to the rules that are being proposed, but there is one that I am opposed to.  It relates to establishing voting rights per the text below:
    These changes mean it will take new members 6-8 months to achieve voting rights, depending on whether or not their first meeting is a Plenary or Interim.  This is caused the the last sentence which says, "The interim session must have occurred within 3 months of the Plenary session for which it substitutes."  I agree that there needs to be a time limit on the interim that can be substituted.  Something like this would work better, "The interim session must have been within the last four Interim meetings and no more than one year preceding the Plenary session at which voting rights are obtained."

    Thanks for considering this comment.

Best regards,
