Re: [802SEC] Fwd: IEEE-SA News Update for September 20, 2007


	What is the rule on this?  Is there a rule?  I know we have some
rules regarding 802.18 representing 802 to regulatory organizations.
Are there other rules regarding giving presentations at workshops or
other presentations?  I know Roger was recently giving a presentation on
802.16 in San Diego (where I live) at a local IEEE meeting.  Was he
supposed to clear such a presentation with the EC?

	I think if the EC has some expectations on such presentations it
is obligated to document those expectations, otherwise 802 members will
not know what those expectations are, and would be left guessing.

This announcement troubles me. Although it does not say that it is being

presented "in cooperation with IEEE 802" there is certainly a strong 
impression given (especially since it is being moderated by our chair)
this event is sanctioned by 802. I don't recall ever having discussed
one way or the other in the EC. Even without any prejudice about how a 
discussion in the EC might turn out, I am uneasy about this. I would be 
interested in your thoughts.
